Agenda Council

The Agenda Council will consist of the President, the Secretary, four faculty members elected at-large, and the Dean of the School of Liberal Arts.

The Agenda Council may receive from all Faculty members items for the Agenda and will determine the Agenda for all meetings of the Faculty Assembly. If any member of the Assembly obtains the signatures of 15 percent of the members of the Assembly in support of a particular item, then upon submission of this item to the Agenda Council, it must be placed on the Agenda of the next scheduled meeting of the Assembly.

The Agenda Council will appoint all committees of the Faculty (as prescribed in Art. IV, Sec. 2) except where otherwise designated.

The Agenda Council will carry out the decisions of the Faculty under the general policies or specific directives established by the Faculty Assembly, and will transmit the decisions of the Faculty to the appropriate unit for implementation.
