After hearing from colleagues who are interested in voting on the question of confidence in the leadership of Provost Tim Greene but who will not be able to attend the WMU-AAUP chapter meeting this afternoon, we have created an online voting instrument. An invitation to vote online will be emailed to all WMU-AAUP bargaining-unit faculty members shortly.
All WMU-AAUP bargaining-unit faculty are eligible to participate in the online balloting.
And we ask that you do so regardless of whether or not you plan to attend the chapter meeting this afternoon.
Please check your wmich email for your invitations to participate, which will be arriving later today.
Thanks to all who have been in touch over the past week with your feedback and input for how best to conduct this vote in a way that emphasizes inclusion.
For those planning to attend today’s meeting, we will meet at 1:30 p.m. in rooms 157-159 of the Bernhard Center.
For updates on this developing situation, please follow the WMU-AAUP on Facebook and Twitter and keep checking this blog.
Its 4:45 p.m. on Saturday 1/31/15 and I still haven’t received an email inviting me to electronically participate in the vote on the provost. What’s happening?
Please check your spam/junk/bulk mail folder(s). A few colleagues whose invitations went missing found them there.
If that’s not the solution for you, my next question would be whether you have previously opted out of receiving Survey Monkey emails. If you have, you’ll need to go to the SM website (surveymonkey.com) and opt back in.
If neither of these scenarios apply in your case, please let me know. I can’t access the WMU-AAUP account myself — only the office staff can do that — but I will ask them to look into this situation first thing Monday morning and get your access link to you so that you can participate in the voting.
Sorry about this! I know it’s annoying. But we’ll get you squared away.
