I'm very confused by this recent flurry of e-mails. It seems like there are at least three versions of events: one involving rejection from legal, one involving rejection by administration, and one involving "dying" on an administrator's desk. I don't understand this. Surely there must be written documentation of what happened after all the work that was done by faculty council. If there is no written documentation, why not? This type of matter is much too important for reliance on memories. Legal would surely still have records about this, so perhaps they should be asked. If they did reject it, they should be asked why they rejected it. Perhaps legal's concerns could be (or could have been) addressed without totally reinventing the wheel. The main point I'm trying to make is that there should be clear documentation in circumstances such as this. Dr. Michael S.
