The Faculty Senate approved a resolution Wednesday challenging an executive order from President George W. Bush that would allow presidents to keep records classified indefinitely. The Senate also passed a resolution listing concerns about the Bush Library complex.
A third resolution with questions about joint and concurrent appointments for staff at the proposed Bush Institute was tabled.
According to English professor Dennis Foster, “It was the first time that the Senate has gotten to really discuss the nuts and bolts of what the relationship between SMU and the institute might be.”
