Potential changes to Senate representation model

Calendar Item: 
Docket Number:

At the recent fall faculty meeting, the faculty voted to allow the senate to determine its own structure, moving that provision from the Faculty Constitution to the Senate Bylaws.  Thus, we need to consider whether changes to the current model of senate representation are warranted, especially due to the extension of voting rights to term and some temporary faculty, but also perhaps for other reasons, as well.  The senate will discuss how to approach this matter, including whether to convene an ad-hoc governance committee to deliberate and provide a proposal to the senate.


Therefore, be it resolved that the senate has consulted regarding potential changes to its representation model, and regarding whether to convene an ad-hoc committee to consider the question and develop a proposal.
