Discretion in Faculty Senate Policy
While the Faculty Senate procedures create the basic structure for a peer classroom observation process and statements by the Provost & Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and the Vice Chancellor for Health Sciences articulate the minimum requirements which must be met, there are some implementing procedures that need to be established in order to begin the in-classroom peer observation process. For the text of the specific decisions that need to be made, see "Implementing Features which need to be established for the Faculty Senate Peer Classroom Observation Procedures" in the section, Basic Required Elements. The decisions being suggested regarding the implementation of the Faculty Senate's in-classroom observation process do not require approval by the appropriate vice chancellor. Please remember, however, that if a unit modifies the Faculty Senate approved procedures or instrument, or creates its own procedures or instrument, those modifications or changes must be approved by the appropriate vice chancellor.
