The End of the Semester

Wow. The grades have finally been submitted. The semester has come to an end for everyone. I'm off to do some research, and I imagine that we won't hear much about developments on campus until September.

That isn't to say that there will not be any. Any good administrator knows to wait until the faculty has left town to change the policies. We have enough trouble working together to defend ourselves when the semester is in! I imagine the Academic Plan Program committee can get serious in figuring out how to justify increasing the teaching load.

Oshkosh has developed into a decent institution with serious and productive research being undertaken by the faculty here. Forcing us to teach more will bring that to an end--let's hope that the administration doesn't forget that when we are all away from campus.
