“Selection of Senate Representatives to Ad Hoc University-Wide Committees and Groups” 

PDF Version of Proposal 18-15

I. Background

In the past, considerable time and effort has been invested in trying to determine how Senate representatives should be selected for ad hoc university-wide committees or other groups. A uniform policy could make this process more efficient. 

Section 2.0 of Senate Procedures 801.1.1 “Search Procedure for University Administrators” indicates that, “The Senate Executive Committee will decide on the selection method” for Senate representatives on search committees for senior, university administrators. http://www.admin.mtu.edu/usenate/policies/p801-1-1.htm

In the recent selection of Senate representatives for a Provost Search Committee, this method proved both effective and efficient. 

Hence, it is proposed that the Senate’s Executive Committee will recommend the appointment of Senate representatives to ad hoc university-wide committees or other groups.  This recommendation shall be approved by a 2/3 majority of the voting Senators.

I. Proposal

The following section will be added to Article I of the Senate’s Bylaws:

O. Selection of Senate Representatives for Ad Hoc University-Wide Committees or Groups 

The Senate’s Executive Committee will recommend the appointment of Senate representatives to ad hoc university-wide committees or other groups.  This recommendation shall be approved by a 2/3 majority of the voting Senators.
