April 21, 2020 Representative Assembly Meeting


April 13, 2020

Dear Colleagues:

The fourth meeting of the 2019-20 academic year is scheduled for Tuesday, April 21st from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. The meeting will be held via Zoom. Representative Assembly members will receive the Zoom link directly. If you are a Senate member who is not an Assembly Representative and you would like to attend the meeting, please RSVP to Ashley Welch at awelch@ucsd.edu to obtain the login instructions. All Senate members are welcome to attend.

The Notice of Meeting (agenda) and all pertinent documents are available on the following webpages.

  1. On the Senate’s homepage under Assembly/Council Meetings, on the lower right side of the Senate Homepage
  2. On the Representative Assembly-Schedule page.

Although the meeting will start at 3:30, we are asking meeting participants to begin logging in at 3:15 to allow time for each participant to be admitted into the meeting. We also ask that your Zoom name match your real name, so that you may be identified. The meeting materials include this and other important Zoom information for this meeting.

The Chancellor and Professor Robert Schooley will address the Assembly at this meeting, and the following proposals will be presented.

  • Proposed slate of candidates for Senate election.
  • Proposal to establish a Master of Engineering in Bioengineering with a specialization in Medical Device Engineering, Department of Bioengineering.
  • Proposal to establish a Master of Science in Health Informatics, Department of Medicine.

As Zoom meetings do not facilitate the same free-flowing discussion as in-person meetings, I ask that you review the meeting materials in advance of the meeting and send questions to academicsenateoffice@ucsd.edu with the agenda topic number or proposal title in the subject line of the email, by noon on Monday, April 20th. Your questions will be shared with the presenters so that they may address them in their presentations, and thus help to mitigate the challenge presented by a large Zoom meeting.

Primary Representatives and Alternate Representatives should coordinate their attendance and voting for this meeting. Both may attend; however, Alternate Representatives may only vote in the absence of the Primary Representative. Please coordinate who will attend and cast votes, in advance of the meeting.

Finally, thank you for your extraordinary efforts during this unprecedented crisis. I am proud to serve as the representative of such exceptional faculty, who have demonstrated that they can and will rise to meet any challenge put to them.

Stay healthy,

Maripat Corr
Academic Senate, San Diego Division
