The Faculty Senate of Seton Hall University


Vol. 1, No. 4, December 2003






                 External Review Resolution

At its meeting on Dec. 12th, the Faculty Senate voted to approve the proposal of the following amendments to the Faculty Guide concerning external review for tenure and promotion: ONLY at the dept. level).  External Review would be contingent upon these:  

(1) a 3-3 course load as standard for all faculty;

(2) an increase in faculty travel money [equal to 4% of average faculty salary];

(3) University Research Council/Faculty Development to be funded at a rate based on two things:

a] 30% of all full-time faculty to be funded at the level of a 3-credit summer course, and

b] URC/Faculty Dev Committee to be appointed by the Senate, not the provost.       

The approved motion will now be forwarded to the provost for his response.
