Evaluation of the Committee:

 

A.     Charge: The Faculty Senate should review the impact of having administrators who are ex-officio members of the committee vote. The committee is supposed to represent the faculty voice, which is presumably separate from the administration’s decision-making authority.

B.     Personnel:the membership is doing a good job.

C.     Attendance:some members do not attend meetings. Most do.

D.     Responsibilities: OK

E.     Activities:OK

 

Suggestions:

 

Reconsider allowing ex-officio to vote or reconsider the balance of administrative to faculty representation on the committee.

 

Does the organizational meeting need to be earlier?  no
