Faculty Senate amendments approved

July 12, 2001

KALAMAZOO -- The Western Michigan University Board of Trustees, acting at its July 6 meeting, approved a series of amendments to the constitution of the WMU Faculty Senate.

The amendments establish a new beginning and end to the Senate's year, change attendance requirements, change the term of senate office from four to six years and eliminate text that conflicts with the senate's current 30-day review process. The changes also will result in the addition of University's vice president for business and finance as a permanent member of the senate's Technology and Operations Council.

Board approval is the final step in the process. The amendments already have been approved by a majority vote of the senate and by WMU President Elson S. Floyd.
