PRESENTATION OF A PROPOSAL
(Draft to be revised and voted on at the 8-30-13 Senate meeting.)
The Standing Committees and individual faculty will have proposals to change curriculum, procedures, working conditions and other areas of university life for the students, staff and faculty.
The By-Laws of the Faculty Senate Section A (iv, v, vi) make these guidelines for submitting proposals:
iv. Proposals may be submitted to the Executive Committee by any Senate member prior to the meeting of Faculty Senate to be placed on the agenda for that meeting.
v. A proposal may be assigned to a committee for review before Senate action. If an assigned bill fails to receive the approval of the committee, it will not normally come back to the Senate. The Senate may, however, override the decision of the committee and consider the bill directly.
vi. Proposals passed by the Senate require final approval by the President of the University. A decision not to approve the proposal shall be communicated to the Senate within 30 days of the Senate approval.
The Standing Committee recorder or faculty member will send any action items that they want to forward to the next level:
