RESOLVED: That theUniversity Senate of Humboldt State University recommends to the President that the attached Policy on the Voluntary Reassignment of Faculty (February 2012) be adopted, and be it further
RESOLVED: That this policy shall be effective immediately upon approval of the President.
RATIONALE: Humboldt State currently lacks a policy governing the voluntary reassignment of faculty from one program to another. Without a policy, any such reassignments could take place without consultation of affected parties. This policy, developed from the best practices at other institutions, establishes a clear framework for voluntary transfers to take place through a consultative process involving the faculty member seeking the transfer, the faculty and chairs of affected departments, and the college deans.
University Senate: Passed Unanimously, March 27, 2012
President Richmond: Approved, April 23, 2012
