Update: Faculty Council Feb 17th

Faculty Council met for the third time in the spring semester on February 17th.

The primary discussion was concentrated on proposed language changes to the Faculty Constitution in three different areas: (i) the term end-date for faculty governance chair and chair-elect positions, (ii) how a quorum is defined for Faculty Council and the standing committees, and (iii) whether the chair and chair-elect of Faculty Council should serve as members of the A&P subcommittee of the Board of Directors.  Council also discussed whether it should serve as a “committee on committees” and should oversee any and all committees on campus to which faculty are appointed or elected. Further discussion on all of these items is expected at the next Faculty Council meeting.
