Faculty Association Bylaws Amendment: Second Reading
Proposed Change To Makeup and Name of the FA
charge of the FA Research committee includes being "advisory to the
Assistant Vice President for Research and to the Director, Office of Research
and Sponsored Programs." The current Vice President for Research has
expressed his desire for (regular input from) an advisory council. Rather than
form a second committee to provide input, which can
lead to confusion, it seems better to broaden the membership of the FA Research
Committee, so that:
(i) the committee has sufficient membership to carry out all its charges and;
(ii) the committee includes a diverse group of faculty actively engaged in
research in order to provide the best counsel to the administration.
(iii) The name change to Faculty Association Research Council will better
reflect the role of the committee.
