MU Chancellor Vows More Communication
COLUMBIA (AP) - University of Missouri Chancellor Brady Deaton says he'll work to improve his communication with faculty. Deaton was responding to a faculty evaluation that gave him high marks overall, but said he could improve his communication skills.
The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that Deaton said in addition to sending more email updates to faculty about campus, state and national issues, he'll also attend more faculty meetings, meet with the MU Faculty Council once each semester and host an annual town
hall meeting with faculty, staff and students.
That's in addition to the two faculty meetings he already hosts every year and his routine meetings with Faculty Council's executive committee.
The faculty evaluation was conducted this past school year and is Deaton's first evaluation since he took the position in 2004.
