COLLEGE SENATE

RESOLUTIONS AND OTHER MATERIALS

  • In accordance with the College By-laws, the College Senate  is responsible for oversight of policies that influence or direct members of the college community. Policies emerge from examinations by members of the College Senate Standing Committees, concerns of individuals on campus, as well as queries from campus units. Standing Committees or Ad Hoc Committees  of the Senate prepare resolutions, to recommend policy measures and actions concerning academics, student conduct, and faculty/staff development. These resolutions are presented to the College Senate  for discussion and approval. Following approval by the College Senate, the resolutions are forwarded to the College President  for final approval, and action. Recommendations for amendments and changes to the Senate By Laws are also gathered in this forum.
Current and past Resolutions  on campus issues, and the tools used in those decision processes, are included in this section.

The following have been accepted by the President on the recommendation of the College Senate:
