b. Chairperson Swallow reported that he, Vice Chairperson Ordoñez and Ms. Grubman had been invited to the new faculty orientation on September 2 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. He explained that he had a previous commitment for that afternoon so Vice Chairperson Ordo&tile;ez had agreed to represent the FSEC.
Chairperson Swallow said that Ms. Grubman had requested a few minutes be set aside for a brief overview of the Faculty Senate by Vice Chairperson Ordo&ntile;ez, rather than simply being available to answer questions as had been the case the previous fall.
