Arrived at ISU:
Hendrich's priorities this year:
- Provide faculty input to develop a comprehensive faculty/staff wellness program
- Work on university-wide learning outcomes and assessment processes
- Enhance a sense of community among faculty members and as a Faculty Senate
- Help show how valuable ISU faculty members are to the state of Iowa
Senate's biggest challenge:
"Resource constraints, which seem likely to continue."
Hendrich's thoughts on the year ahead:
"Representing the faculty -- who by their nature, and by the nature of the university, hold very diverse viewpoints on issues -- will be a great challenge. I feel prepared to bring people together to create consensus and move forward to make ISU even better."
