Faculty Senate Parking, Transportation and Safety Committee

The Faculty Senate Parking, Transportation and Safety Committee evaluates and makes recommendations concerning policy or procedures relating to parking, transportation, and safety.

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 parking, transportation, and campus safety and security that will foster a mutually beneficial environment for faculty, staff, students, and visitors in the university community.
  2. To make recommendations to the Steering Committee of the Faculty Senate.

The committee shall consist of at least one faculty member from each academic unit, the vice president for Administration and Finance or his/her designee (ex officio), and the UCF Police Chief or his/her designee (ex officio). Committee members shall be selected by the Committee on Committees. 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. The chair of the Faculty Senate Parking, Transportation and Safety Committee or designee will serve as an ex officio member on the University Parking and Transportation Committee. Terms of service are two years, staggered.

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.
