Faculty Meetings

There may be situation s where meetings only of the departmental (school) faculty are appropriate.  The dean will schedule the meetings and set the agenda, in consultation with division chairs, committee chairs, associate/assistant deans and others, as appropriate, and preside over the meeting.  The purpose of these meetings is to generate discussion in a smaller group setting, to determine new or to modify existing school policies and procedures; and to decide on items requiring a faculty vote that are best handled in this context rather than the larger faculty/staff meeting context.  One example is hearing and deciding on appeals by students according to standard procedures.
