Dear Faculty and students- Thanks for speaking up. For now online GIL Express requests are restored. See this email from Dr. Tom Maier, Vice Chancellor Board of Regents.
We have received many concerns from faculty and administrators around the System with respect to the negative impact a suspension of the GIL Express service will have on core activities such as instruction and research. We want to be responsive to these concerns and so we are continuing GIL Express through the end of Fall Semester with the expressed intent of finding a way to support this service going forward. I believe that working in good faith with all areas of the System Office and our campuses, we can find a way to address the required budget cuts while maintaining this critical service. Please share this information with your faculty.Thanks to all who have voiced concerns about the loss of GIL Express. We want to make the best decisions we can in these difficult times to protect the viability of the very reasons we exist; teaching, learning, and scholarship. – Tom
