To ensure that the name of the Committee is an accurate reflection of what the Committee is tasked with, and empowered to do.

  I. Research Committee

  J.  Strategic Planning Committee (Strategic Planning Advisory Committee)

  K. Support Services Committee

  L. Executive Committee

 

 Proposal #2 (In-Charge):

To modify the bylaws of the Committee to provide a more accurate reflection of what the Committee is tasked with, and empowered to do.

Rationale:
In essence the Committee exists and serves in a review and advisory role to the relevant Strategic plans and strategic planning processes it is tasked with. These Bylaw changes will provide a more accurate description of the extent of that role and responsibility.

Proposal #3 (Membership):

 To modify the faculty make-up of the Committee to be more inclusive of representatives from across all academic units.

Rationale:
 Strategic planning is a critical part of all academic units and as such all of these units need to be represented in the Faculty Association oversight and advisory Committee. This change will also bring the Committee in line with most of the other Faculty Association standing committees.
