2. Date of Faculty Senate discussion: November 3, 2003

A motion for referral of the Academic Plan motion approved in the 11/3/03 Faculty Senate meeting, to the faculty at large, because the motion is a fundamental issue.

If one third of the senators or the majority of the tenure-track faculty of any college or school votes that a decision is of such fundamental importance, a faculty meeting to ratify the decision will be called by the Faculty Senate chair. This meeting will be conducted by the procedural rules of the Faculty Senate."

4. Senate action: passed, on November 3, 2003

Vote: A motion to refer requires a one-third affirmative vote. The motion passed, with sixteen ayes, twenty-four nays and no abstentions.
