Changes to Loyola, including recent buyouts, the search for a new university president and the newly instated purchasing policy were among the topics of discussion as Interim Provost David Borofsky spoke at a faculty senate meeting on Thursday.

The meeting began with the release of the names of faculty members involved in the most recent round of buyouts that took place in July.

Those faculty included: Luis Miron, Anthony Ladd, Georgia Gresham, Lydia Voigt, Lawrence Lewis, Lynn Koplitz, Elizabeth Beard, William Grote, Connie Rodriguez and William Thornton.

Later, Borofsky assured the group that “there are no more planned employee cuts.”

Borofsky also said that no decisions have yet been made regarding President Kevin Wildes’ successor, saying, “The board is putting together their search process.”

Borofsky also used the opportunity to defend the university’s updated purchasing policy, which places new spending guidelines on everything from plane tickets to birthday cards.

“The truth is that we have spent money at this university in ways we probably shouldn’t,” Borofsky said.

Borofsky citied the new purchasing policies as a way to “get people to think about what they really need to do their jobs.”

But he also assured the group that departments could still, for example, purchase pizza for events as long as it was contributing to retention.

On Aug. 22 at 11 a.m. there was another discussion of the purchasing policies, Borofsky said.

He also announced two upcoming chances for in-depth discussions of Project Magis, the university’s plan to eliminate the deficit and put money back into the endowment in the next couple of years.

The first town hall was held on Aug. 24 from 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. in Nunemaker Hall and the second is scheduled for Roussel Hall on Aug. 28, also from 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m.

    Y’all spelled Dr. Koplitz’s first name wrong.

    Thank you to Cody for looking out for me and to Sidney for the correction. Was it spelled with an “e” on the end initially? Lynne Koplitz is a comedienne.
