Motion Passed by Majority Vote of Faculty Senate
APRIL 7, 2000
- The Faculty Senate will facilitate a vote of the faculty to consider ratification of the forthcoming proposal to restructure the Core curriculum.
- In the consideration of this proposal the voting constituency will be composed of those individuals in the Departments, Units or Schools in the "Three Faculties" (AHUM, SOCS, & NSME) and those in DCB & GSIS (referred to below as "professional programs") with full-time continuing appointments as Professors, Associate Professors, Assistant Professors, Instructors, or Lecturers (including Core Lecturers).
- At the meeting designated for the vote, one Senator from each of the units comprising the voting constituency will submit a composite ballot (provided by the Senate office) indicating the number of members of their voting constituency who, as a result of a formal vote in her/his unit, favor the proposal, oppose it, or abstain from voting on it. These votes will be tallied by the Executive Secretary of the Senate and the Chair of NCR who will report to the Senate. Reporting will reflect the aggregate votes cast by all faculty, by the Three Faculties, and by faculty in the professional programs.
- The votes of the faculty and any Senate vote(s) concerning the curriculum proposal will be forwarded in a timely fashion as a recommendation to the Provost and to the Undergraduate Council.
