Logistically speaking, members would periodically communicate in various ways in matters not requiring complex considerations and deliberation (e.g. electronic exchanges, concise and targeted meetings or gatherings). For matters requiring dialogue and deliberation, we would then gather together in some capacity and for whatever duration is necessary (e.g. single gathering on one issue for consideration and decision; a meal with dialogue followed later by a formal meeting for decision-making, etc.). Two initial guiding principles for this body are that we overwhelmingly utilize faculty time for i) ultimately arriving at decisions together, as well as ii) sustaining our independent and joint work within these areas.
