Committee on Faculty Welfare Endorses Domestic Partner Benefits for Gay and Lesbian Marquette Faculty
An e-mail from Matt Blessing, Chair of the Committee on Faculty Welfare.
Hi John,We asked Blessing whether he had any comment about the way the discussion went. He responded:
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.
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.
