Hopefully the level of attendance at today's Town Hall meeting will be high, but if it is not, the Senate and administration mustn't make the mistake of assuming the level of faculty concern with the proposed policy to be correspondingly modest. It is not. I for one would have readily attended today's Town Hall meeting but was unable because of the not-at-all-unusual time demands of my work, and I know the same to be true of many of my colleagues. (The fact that so many faculty members are so busy also has a relevant substantive dimension. If we're too busy to participate directly in discussing our own long-term interests as affected by the proposed policy, then by the same token we're too busy to absorb the burdens of new and purely prophylatic reporting requirements.) o By Carl S.
