Faculty Association Bylaws Amendment: First Reading


Addition of New Article Proposal – No Confidence Vote Process



No Confidence Vote


If 40 members of the Faculty Association (as defined in Article III, Section 1), with membership from at least two different colleges (including the library), seek to conduct a vote of confidence in the University President or a Vice President, they may approach the UNF Faculty Association President with a request for such a vote. The Faculty Association President will then conduct the vote, ensuring confidentiality of participants. The Faculty Association President will report both to the University Faculty and to the Chair of the Board of Trustees (a) the total number of votes and (b) the number of votes for and against. No more than one such vote of confidence shall be conducted for any one administrator within a twelve month period.


Amendment of Bylaws


These Bylaws may be amended at any regular meeting of the Association by two-thirds of the votes cast, provided that the amendment has been submitted in writing to the membership at the previous regular meeting.
