Budget and Administrative Committee

The Budget and Administrative Committee evaluates and recommends policies and procedures concerning university budget with special emphasis on the academic budget.

About Senate Operational Committees

The Faculty Senate establishes Senate operational committees, which report to the full Faculty Senate at each meeting of the Faculty Senate. Senate Operational Committees serve to expedite the efficient functioning of the Senate and its affairs to address matters relating to faculty interests and functions. The chair of each committee, directed by majority vote of the committee membership, shall bring policy matters to the Faculty Senate Steering Committee for consideration. Even though there is no voting by proxy for Senate meetings, Senate operational committees may adopt policies at the start of the year to allow voting by proxy. According to Robert’s Rules of Order (latest edition) proxies should be written, be for a specific meeting, and be given to the committee chair before the start of a meeting.

Duties and Responsibilities

  1. To evaluate and recommend policies and procedures concerning the university budget with special emphasis on the academic budget.
  2. To make recommendations on any administrative procedure that affects faculty members in the performance of their work.
  3. To participate in the academic planning process as appropriate.
  4. To make recommendations to the Steering Committee of the Faculty Senate.

Membership

The committee consists of at least fourteen members of the general faculty, at least eight of whom are current members of the Faculty Senate; the provost and vice president for Academic Affairs or his/her designee (ex officio); and the Chief Financial Officer or his/her designee (ex officio). Committee members shall be selected by the Committee on Committees, in consultation with the provost and vice president for Academic Affairs. It is expected that each academic unit shall have one representative. The remaining members are unrestricted with regard to academic unit affiliation. Terms of service are two years, staggered. The committee chair and vice chair shall be elected annually by its membership at the first meeting of the committee after the new Faculty Senate is elected, normally in the early fall term. Committee members continue to serve until their replacements are appointed.

A committee member designated as an ex officio member is a contributing member who takes part in all discussions and serves as a resource person but is non-voting and cannot serve as the chair of the committee.

For expectations of committee members, see Operational Committee Procedures.
