Committee on Faculty Welfare Endorses Domestic Partner Benefits for Gay and Lesbian Marquette Faculty

On an issue we have been covering:

An e-mail from Matt Blessing, Chair of the Committee on Faculty Welfare.
Hi John,

The CFW voted 7-2 in favor of the motion advancing to the Academic Senate for their review. All members voted. As with any vote, the minutes will reflect the outcome of the vote, not how each individual voted.
We asked Blessing whether he had any comment about the way the discussion went. He responded:
Speaking for myself, I felt the motion presented to CFW by the Subcommittee on Equity (specifically the “whereas” sections of the motion) demonstrated that they’d gathered data and done their research. In my opinion, the motion was ready for presentation and discussion in the University Academic Senate.

Best,
Matt Blessing

Does Marquette still hold it's affiliation with the Catholic Church? If so, how long do you think that will last as they race down the Secular Highway?
