On Reviewing SOSA Policies and Procedures
There has not yet been a review of SOSA policies and procedures. It is timely to do so now, all the more so in light of two concerns that have been raised by faculty members who have sought support through SOSA. The first is whether recommendations for support are being made equitably for all three categories of teacher-scholars. The second is whether SOSA should be providing feedback to applicants in order to help them better understand the SOSA process and to strengthen their applications for the future.
The Committee on Faculty Affairs should issue a report with its recommendations concerning both SOSA policies and procedures in general and the two specific issues that have been noted by May 1, 2003.
