Message on Classroom Student Conduct – Response to Provost’s Email

Dear EMU Faculty Colleagues:

One particular item that the EMU-AAUP will address in negotiations is faculty and student safety in the classroom and our ongoing disagreement with the administration's understanding and handling of the matter. The administration's position was articulated in the Provost's most recent email (February 17) to the faculty as is discussed below.  Although we are pleased that the Provost finally communicated with the faculty about this situation, we have concerns with the additional comments and interpretations on faculty and student safety as evidenced in her email.

In discussions with the Provost, and based on her comments in a recent Senate meeting, it appears that she believes that the faculty need to put more 'rules' in their syllabi to cover disruptive student behavior and the outcome of such behavior to be imposed by a faculty member.  The Provost wants the EMU administration to have cover if a faculty member demands that a student be removed from their classes.
