Albany report
« on: November 16, 2010, 03:50:18 PM »
There is much construction, roads, sidewalks, new dorms in progress, etc.

There is a slight chance that some of you might have heard about the proposed deactivation of 5 programs here, namely French, Russian, Italian, Theater, and Classics. Everyone I have spoken to is quite disappointed both at the proposal itself and at the way it was introduced, and the University Senate has been addressing it in various ways. Since I have an M.A. from the Russian program it is difficult for me to be impartial in the matter, so I'll stick to this short announcement.

I feel like I should finish with  some good news, so I'm happy to announce that Ann Gunning (formerly of Nylink) has joined us in a temporary position assisting our Dean, Mary Casserly. Welcome, Ann!
