Department Meeting Rule #4

In general, the specifics of the faculty meeting discussions (and especially votes) are not to be repeated to your graduate students.

Of course. I only repeat the specifics to our undergrads.

At departments where graduate students representatives are present in faculty meetings (and there are quite a few), this rule doesn't make much sense.

9:16-- Hence the "in general." And if grad student reps are in the meetings, there's no need for faculty to repeat what went on to their students; that's the rep's job. Duh.

Another rule, not just for department meetings: never use "Duh" as a rough synonym for "QED".

@3:45 - Seconded. But I propose that "durh" is indeed an acceptable substitute for "QED" in these contexts.
