The University Senate and the Constitution and Bylaws Committee (CBC) invites feedback from the campus community on a proposed revision to the University Senate Constitution. Comments are due by Friday, October 25, 2013.
The Constitution and Bylaws Committee will review and consider all feedback, and forward a final proposed revision to the University Senate.
This proposed revision of the document as a whole is intended to eliminate conflicts and/or redundancies that exist with other governance documents, and to incorporate revisions made to the Senate Bylaws last year, so that the Constitution and Bylaws are aligned. The document has been re-formatted for clarity and ease of use. It is expected that over time, additional changes may need to be made to this Constitutional document and those will be proposed on a case-by-case basis as amendments.
Documents for Review:
