JCCC Dislikes Social Media Policy

JCCC Faculty Senate votes against Kansas Board of Regents Social Media Policy

Johnson County Community College Faculty Senate released a statement taking a stand for academic freedom. The statement released to the senate’s electronic mail server, Jan. 29, supports the state-wide Council of Faculty Senate Presidents’ call for the Kansas Board of Regents to suspend it’s newly adopted social media policy until the KBOR and the council can agree on a new one.

On Thursday, January 23, the Johnson County Community College Faculty Senate voted unanimously to support the Council of Faculty Senate Presidents’ resolution opposing the Board of Regents’ social media policy and calling for its suspension. Although the policy as written does not apply to community colleges, our action indicates the support by the faculty of the state’s largest community college for the rights of free speech and academic freedom in higher education.

Terry Calaway

Terry Calaway

After not making the cut for the Florida State College at Jacksonville president job, Terry Calaway is on the short list for the position of Chancellor of the City College of San Francisco.

Considering how diverse City College of San Francisco is, one wonders if they will have the same concerns staff at Florida State had about Calaway shutting down the Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (ODEI) when he was president of Johnson County Community College. Will CCSF’s Faculty Diversity Internship program continue? How about it’s Gender Diversity Project or the  Latino Services Network?

— Terry Calaway, 57, retired in August after six years as president of Johnson County Community College in Kansas, a school of 60,000 students. He grew enrollment by 8 percent and coordinated academics with four-year universities. His 36-year career in academia includes four as president of Central Arizona College.

In 2011, the college expelled four nursing students who posted photos on Facebook showing them working with placenta. A court ordered reinstatement of a student who sued.

Calaway holds a doctorate in education administration from the University of Texas at Austin.
