Faculty Association Bylaws Amendment: Second Reading  

  Campus Technology Committee Charge and Membership Changes Proposal  

The proposed changes to the membership and the charge for the Campus Technology Committee (CTC) attempt to form a single centralized committee with membership and charge similar to that of the previous CTC and the University Technology Committee (UTC).  If approved, the UTC will sunset and thus the changes will enable the CTC to be the primary campus committee devoted to academic technology, thereby enhancing the importance and impact of the committee and providing a stronger voice for faculty.
