Motion on Work to Rule and University-wide Committees


Motion on Work to Rule and University-wide Committees


1.  Motion presenter:   Mark Wrighton

2.  Date of Faculty Senate discussion:  11/13/06

3.  Motion:

For the duration of work to rule, the Faculty Senate shall recall its representatives to those university committees on which it has representation, with the exception of those committees deemed by the Agenda Committee to be critical for faculty or students

4.  Rationale:

Since, for the duration of work to rule, the senate will not be considering university-initiated business (as per the first motion passed on 10/30/06), nor sending representatives to university ceremonial functions (as per the second motion), nor having university administrators address the senate, it should also not contribute to quorums for university committees, the work of which benefits the university administration.  The Agenda Committee would report to the senate any exceptions, and the Faculty Senate could rule on them if it wished.

5.  Senate action:  passed                                              Vote:  with 27 ayes, 7 nays, and 2 abstentions

Senate chair’s signature:  J. C. Salloway
