As new SIUC Chancellor Carlo Montemagno began his tenure at Carbondale earlier this fall, he proposed a dramatic re-organization of the campus’ degree programs.

Since that announcement, students and faculty across campus weighed in through town halls, many voicing concerns about the proposal, especially graduate students as many teaching positions would likely be eliminated.

On Tuesday, the Faculty Senate voted 19-11, with three abstentions, to oppose the restructuring plan by passing a resolution urging the chancellor to allow departments to remain if faculty in those areas so choose.

The administration has said it wishes to implement the new structure in time for the next school year.
