Faculty/Staff Meeting Procedures

All-school meetings of the faculty and staff are held at least once per semester. 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 inform faculty/staff about issues facing the school; to receive reports and discuss recommendations from various school committees, other groups, or individuals; to determine new or modify existing school policies and procedures; and to decide on all items requiring a faculty vote. For decisions requiring departmental (school) faculty oversight, academic and classified staff are invited to attend and participate in discussions at faculty/staff meetings and retreats, but do not vote .
