  Faculty Association Bylaws Amendment: First Reading  

 

Academic Programs Committee Membership Changes Proposal    

 

The Academic Programs Committee proposes the following change to the Bylaws to remove the requirement of the student members because their attendance has not been occurring, which impedes a quorum when faculty members are also absent from a scheduled meeting. A message was sent by the APC Chair to Student Government and we are waiting for their response.  In early September they requested more time for consideration of this proposed change to the committee's bylaws.

 

A motion was made and approved to increase the committee membership from 14 to 15 members, with the membership as follows: 12 faculty members, 2 from each of the colleges, one from the Library and one At-Large and 3 students. This would increase faculty membership from CCEC from 1 to 2 representatives.
