(deletions are noted by strike through and additions are noted by bold print):
The composition of each unit‰s Personnel Committee shall be determined by the unit but shall consist of at least three members. The membership of the committee shall be composed of some or all of only the permanently tenured and probationary-term voting faculty members of the unit, including those who are on leave but in attendance at the meeting at the time of the committee's vote, but excluding the unit administrator. At least two thirds of the Unit Personnel Committee membership shall be permanently tenured voting faculty. When there are not enough permanently tenured voting faculty members in the unit to satisfy this requirement, additional permanently tenured faculty shall be appointed according to the procedures in Section IV.A.1.b. above. All other members of the Unit Personnel Committee shall be elected by the permanently tenured and probationary-term voting faculty of the unit. ,

[Bracketed material is not part of the proposed procedure.]
The Oliver Max Gardner Award
Governor Gardner‰s will provides that the ,Board of Trustees of the Consolidated University of North CarolinaŠ shall pay annually the net income from a trust fund to ,that member of the faculty of the scholastic year, has made the greatest contribution to the welfare of the human race. As used in this Article of my will, the term ,faculty‰ shall embrace all persons, including instructors, engaged in teaching in any unit, institution or branch of service of the Consolidated University of North Carolina.Š
In January, 1973, the Attorney General of North Carolina rendered an opinion that the ,coverage of the Gardner Award may be extended to include faculty members at any one of the sixteen campuses which now constitute The University of North Carolina.Š
Proposed Revision to the ECU Undergraduate Catalog,
Section 5: Academic Regulations, subsection Grade Replacement Policy
(page 46 of the 2001-2002 catalog)
Revise the text in the second paragraph to read as follows:
(deletions are noted by strike through and additions are in bold)
,To replace a grade the student must request a grade replacement on the online registration form, the schedule change form, or the grade replacement form; register for the course during the registration period; and submit the form to the Office of Registrar or the Office of Undergraduate Studies. The form must be submitted no later than the last day to drop a course(s) or withdraw from school without grades of classes of the semester in which the student wishes to implement the policy. Although the original grade will not be used in determining the GPA of the student, the original grade will remain on the student‰s permanent academic record and will be included in the calculation for consideration for honors. The replacement grade, or last grade, stands. Students receiving an F on the replacement grade must repeat the course if credit is required for graduation. In the event that the original grade was a D, no additional credit hours will be awarded. ,
