__________________________________________________________________________________________

UNH FACULTY SENATE
MOTION # XIV-M16

on no decision now on NAVITAS

1.  Motion presenter:  David Richman

2.  Date of Faculty Senate discussion:  4/19/2010

3.   Rationale: 

The chair of the senate’s Academic Affairs Committee said that his committee has decided not to work on the NAVITAS charge during work to rule and has recommended that the Faculty Senate hold on this matter and make clear to the administration that, if it moves forward with this partnership without Faculty Senate approval, such action would constitute a violation of shared governance.  The AAC chair suggested the possibility of hearing the Finance and Administration Committee report on NAVITAS but stating in the senate minutes that no action should be taken until both committees have reported and the senate acts on NAVITAS and that the issue should be frozen until that happens. 

4.   Motion: 

The Faculty Senate takes no decision at this time on the question of NAVITAS; and any report that the Faculty Senate hears on NAVITAS should be construed simply as a report that the senate is hearing and constitutes neither approval nor disapproval on NAVITAS.

5.  Senate action:  passed with twenty-three ayes, no nays, and five abstentions.

6.  Senate chair’s signature:  Paula Salvio

Forwarded to:  President Mark Huddleston, on May 4, 2010

Forwarded to:  Provost John Aber, on May 4, 2010
