2. Marc Becker gave a report on the Faculty Attrition survey.
Becker suggested the results were similar to survey done at University
of Minnesota, that is, the percentage of faculty leaving matches
University of Minnesota. There was a discussion about when to
distribute the results and to whom. It was suggested by the president
that the distribution should be put into a positive realm showing
AAUP as a positive force on campus. It was decided not to send
the survey directly to the Board, but to send the survey to the
administration, and invite administrators to consider joining
AAUP as associates.
