Amendment to the ORGANIZATION AND PROCEDURES OF THE UNIVERSITY FACULTY (OPUF)

Whereas the Senate received the Governance Committee report in 2007 and called on the Dean of Faculty and University Faculty Committee to “initiate further consideration of the recommendations”, and
Whereas the Governance Committee of the Senate recommended that the University Faculty Committee (UFC) be expanded to allow non Senators to be elected to the UFC (“Five members of the UFC shall be current Senate members at the time of their election; four need not be current members of the Senate at the time of their election.”) and
Whereas the UFC and the Dean of Faculty agree that the UFC should be expanded to allow non-Senators to be elected to the UFC,
Therefore be it resolved that the Operational Procedures of the University Faculty (OPUF) be amended as follows:
VIII. Committees.
B. Membership
