UA Faculty Endorses Student Government Virus Waiver

Decisions regarding attendance in the classroom are traditionally the choice of the faculty. However, UA students have pushed back against such requirements over increasing concerns regarding personal safety in the midst of the pandemic.

  • On Wednesday, UA's Faculty Senate voted to approve their own non-binding resolution, endorsing the student government request to waive attendance requirements.
  • John Post, a UA spokesman, said in an email Wednesday evening that the faculty resolutions and endorsements "will now be evaluated and considered."
    "We're hopeful that final decisions on some of the resolutions can be made as early as the end of this week," Post said. -Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
