"She dug herself a deep hole and she's now trying to dig her way out of it," said Lynn Nadel, UA Regents Professor of Psychology and Chair of the Strategic Planning and Budget Advisory Committee.
Nadel said the big change since the faculty poll is the creation of a SPBAC subcommittee that is charged with making sure Hay's my-way-or-the-highway method of faculty consultation is changed. The committee, called SPBAC 2012 in reference to the funding "cliff" anticipated in 2012 when the federal stimulus dollars go dry, is meant to increase communication both up and down the chain of command. It is a 15-member committee appointed by Nadel, with representation from staff, the student body and every major UA college, including the College of Humanities and the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, both of whic have felt put upon since receiving 7 percent cuts to their budgets this year. Here's Nadel:
Holding Shelton and Hay's feet to the fire, however, doesn't mean looking to the past, but focusing on future cuts, Nadel said.
But, Nadel said, while a 7 percent cut equates to cutting 1 out of every 14 faculty members, that cut doesn't equate to Shelton and Hay saying they want to get rid of a college.
This comes courtesy of an interview with a patient and thoughtful Lynn Nadel, who is a UA Regents Professor of Psychology (among other things) and one of the faculty leaders who developed the poll and is helping slog through the written responses that were not tabulated by computer.
As reported by the dead-tree media and yours truly, the poll shows that only 31 percent of faculty eligible to vote in the poll actually did. The problem with that number, Nadel said, is that "eligible faculty" include the retired tenured faculty and "we have no way of knowing how many of them voted. The only thing the faculty leadership can go on is past participation by emeriti faculty in various votes (i.e. casting ballots for Faculty Senate contenders) is slim to none.
So, if one assumes, as the faculty leaders think they probably should, that few if any of the 750 emeriti faculty voted, the "eligible voters" number drops to about 2,000 active faculty members. Then (stay with me!) if you also account for the fact that the poll had problems getting to people and once it did get to them, they had problems voting due to computer glitches, the number of "eligible voters" could have dropped even further. Meaning, Nadel said, that the 858 people who voted might actually represent a response rate closer to 40 percent, not 31, and maybe even up to 50 percent.
"We didn't think to put a box on the poll that emeriti faculty could have checked to identify as such, which would have helped," said Nadel, with an oh-well-next-time shrug.
Regardless, 31 percent response is "a non-trivial number of people" he said.
Nadel said he thinks the poll is open to multiple interpretations and was careful to stress that his viewpoint about what it meant was his alone. That said, he thinks one message came through "loud and clear."
"Whatever position one had on the actual decisions regarding funding cuts, there was a general dismay in the faculty over the level of communication," he said.
"Well," Nadel said, "I know Steve MacCarthy, and he's a smart guy, but there is an issue of interpretation.
Nadel, who had met with Hay a few hours before meeting with me, does not belong to the "hang 'em up by their toes" group.
Nadel was circumspect when asked if this poll was more about Hay than Shelton.
Nadel said it would be bad idea to oust either Shelton or Hay during this time of budget crisis.
To truly show that they "get" the communication issue, Nadel said Shelton and Hay would have to forthrightly address what really has faculty and department heads worried - and it isn't just that they are afraid of losing their departments.
"We become academics because we have a deep sense of what a university is," Nadel said.
Nadel said a bunch of other insightful things, like how the people in the sciences - who have more leverage because they draw in more grants - need to stand in the gap and speak up for "people on the other side of the street" like humanities and social sciences, and that faculty should work together to find ways to share funding and raise money, and how tuition may have to go even higher, but in the end, it got back to Shelton and Hay and communication.
It was signed by Faculty Senate Chair Wanda Howell; Vice-chair Robert Mitchell; Secretary J.C. Mutchler; Mike Cusanovich, a member of the Committee of Eleven; and Lynn Nadel, chair of the Strategic Planning and Budget Advisory Committee.
