The second town hall meeting in as many months between members of Columbia’s full- and part-time faculty, administration, staff and students was held on Jan. 27, with many of the same attendees present and themes of the initial town hall meeting last year being discussed.

Taking questions from the audience were Interim Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs Louise Love, Interim Associate Provost for Faculty Affairs Len Strazewski, Associate Professor in the Marketing Communication Department Shanita Akintonde and Vice President of Student Affairs Mark Kelly.

Topics under the microscope included the treatment of part-time faculty and staff, a potential freeze of tuition costs, budget transparency, fair representation for part-time faculty within decisions that affect the college as a whole and the ongoing prioritization process.
