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
(1) a 3-3 course load as standard for
(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.
