Faculty Academic Senate Set to Endorse Domestic Partner Benefits for Gay and Lesbian Faculty
We won’t be there, unfortunately, since Political Science is hiring and our candidate is doing a job talk.
It’s virtually certain that the proposal will be approved.
Not only is the Marquette faculty generally liberal and rather secular, the faculty politicians in the Academic Senate are even more so.
A committee considering the issue voted 7-2 in favor of domestic partner benefits.
The vote will be a show of hands, so expect any members of the Senate who have reservations to be very reticent to show opposition.
The gay lobby on campus has shown itself willing to attack and demean those who oppose its agenda. It will be a real show of courage if even a substantial minority of members vote against the proposal.
