Faculty senate starts new term

Cougar News Services

Joseph Eichberg, a professor in the department of biology and biochemistry, will finally assume responsibilities as faculty senate president during the senate's Wednesday meeting.

Before then, incoming senators and officers will participate in a New Senator Welcome Luncheon at noon today in the Brown Room of the
M.D. Anderson Memorial Library. Senators will also be encouraged to attend a day-long off-campus retreat on Feb. 15.

Eichberg told UH Campus News that he hoped to attend the Deans' Council meetings periodically because keeping an open line of
communication between the faculty and dean colleges is vital.

He also said duties of communicating are up to individual department chairs, because aside from their administrative responsibilities, they
can help deans interact with the faculty.

Eichberg has been at UH for 25 years and has spent nine of those working with the faculty senate. He was encouraged to run for
president in late 2000 by then faculty president-elect Jerome Freiberg.

He also told UHCN that he would keep a close eye on the University's software conversion to PeopleSoft.
