Linda Pisano

As a faculty member at IUB for almost eighteen years, I've always been encouraged by the representation on the council and have seen positive campus changes and initiatives that have started with action in the BFC. Serving as a faculty representative to the BFC I will commit to serving with a conscientious perspective, clear voice and attentive to how we navigate shared governance in our changing landscape.

I previously served on the BFC (including asmember of a by-laws revisions committee in 2010) and welcome the opportunity to serve again. I bring experience from multiple positions at IUB--including as Associate Vice Provost for Faculty and Academic Affairs, Associate Dean in the College, and department chair—each of which offers a different and valuable perspective on University operations. Throughout my career, I have maintained a deep commitment to faculty governance and to ensuring that faculty and students have a voice in major policy decisions.

These are some projects that I would like to help the BFC work on:

  1. Help campus governance be more engaged and inclusive by enabling even those individuals who are not serving on BFC standing committees to collaborate on and propose policies and actions for the BFC to consider.
  2. Explore alignment between the campus's main missions and its revenue-allocation policies. One question is how highly to prioritize in those budget policies the research/scholarship mission specifically of the College.
  3. Harmonize better the campus's Gen Ed requirements and the College's CASE requirements. At minimum, streamline the Gen Ed course-approval process for courses that already count for corresponding College CASE credit. Also, explore the possibility of revising or doing away with existing Gen Ed assessment requirements.
