[The following resolution was adopted by the Faculty Senate on July 12, 1976.]
THE UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE FACULTY SENATE
WHEREAS, The University of Tennessee-Knoxville, like many other academic institutions, has recently experienced a period of budgetary stress threatening many of the important goals held by the University community, and
WHEREAS, periods of budgetary stress tend to create their own series of administrative problems superimposed on those which must be routinely accommodated by University administrators, and
WHEREAS, adequately coping with these problems of budgetary stress involves manifold subtleties stemming from a long-standing and widespread problem of adequate state funding in general, UTK's natural budgetary competition with other deserving state supported functions, and the attendant political, economic, and philosophical sensitivities of this competition, and
WHEREAS, through personal concern and innovative leadership, numerous candid meetings with various faculty groups, timely preparation and dissemination of a report presenting a frank analysis of important UTK budgetary problems, and through a general facilitation of communications among various University groups and legislative representatives, we feel that a new standard of UTK faculty-administration cooperative budgetary effort has been reached.
BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED that The University of Tennessee-Knoxville Faculty Senate on behalf of the University of Tennessee-Knoxville faculty heartily commends Chancellor Jack E. Reese for the many evidences of his deep personal concern and his willingness to go beyond measures required by his official responsibilities to enhance the welfare of this University.
