Personnel Committee

The Personnel Committee studies and recommends academic personnel policy and standards, including university-wide promotion and tenure criteria.

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 funcitions. 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 study and recommend academic personnel policy and standards, including promotion and tenure criteria.
  2. To be responsible for procedures to evaluate administrators and department chairs and oversee such evaluations.
  3. To consider other matters related to the professional well-being of the faculty, including academic freedom.
  4. To make recommendations to the Steering Committee of the Faculty Senate.

Membership

The committee shall consist of at least one faculty member from each academic unit and the provost and vice president for Academic Affairs or his/her designee (ex officio). All committee members must be faculty holding the rank of associate professor or professor, associate or senior instructor, associate or senior lecturer, or associate or university librarian. Committee members shall be selected by the Committee on Committees, in consultation with the provost and vice president for Academic Affairs. 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.

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.
