Faculty Committee on Foundation Investments

Posed to: President John Delaney, University of North Florida

Last academic year, the Faculty Association and Faculty Affairs Committee rejected a proposal to create a committee of faculty to consult with the UNF Foundation concerning its investments. Even if the proposal to stop certain investments is rejected, does that also mean that the creation of a faculty consultative committee should be rejected as well?

Response from UNF President John Delaney: 

I suppose this question is best directed to the Faculty Association and the Faculty Affairs Committee. The faculty have wide discretion to create committees, disband committees, or to decide whether or not to create a committee.
