A More Inclusive Senate

On August 29, 2018, the results of the tenure-line faculty vote on the changes to the Faculty Senate Constitution were announced: tenure-line faculty voted, 323-66, to approve the proposed changes.

Those changes went into effect immediately.  The next departmental census (Spring 2019) will be calculated including all faculty through full-time equivalents (FTEs), and all full-time faculty are now eligible to serve in the Senate.

You can see the email announcing the passage of the changes here:

The Task Force thanks everyone on campus for their participation in this journey.  We hope to continue to have conversations around issues of shared governance and creating even more inclusive environments for all faculty, staff, and students at the university.
