In keeping with the primary purpose of the Faculty Senate to act as a liaison between the faculty and the administration of Fort Valley State University and to promote shared governance of the institution, we want to assure that any concerns or suggestions faculty may have for the betterment of this institution are duly considered. Your faculty Senator will be happy to bring your concerns or suggestions to the attention of the Faculty Senate, but on the occasion that you are for some reason unable to adequately communicate with them, this form has been developed so that you may provide the Faculty Senate, and it’s various committees, with your input. As it is a sincere concern of the faculty senate to maintain transparency and good working relationships among our colleagues, administration, and all other staff at this institution, we expect that all concerns or suggestions will be submitted with the same intent. We firmly believe that as an institution, it is in our best interests to handle all concerns in-house whenever possible. To this end, we ask that each individual submitting this form be willing to identify themselves to preclude malicious submissions. Recognizing that there are, upon occasion, legitimate reasons that concerns being voiced remain anonymous, a block designating “I wish to remain anonymous” has been provided. If you check this block, we will make every reasonable effort to ensure that your name will be shared with no one outside the Faculty Welfare Committee and the Executive Committee of the Faculty Senate however we must make legally mandated disclosures. These are the committees which are responsible for addressing the concerns of the faculty as well as setting the agenda for the Faculty Senate and prioritizing the concerns and suggestions which are heard by the Senate respectively.
