Charges to Committees as presented by President Barrington on 10/10/11

Elections Committee—We need to implement strategies to bring more faculty into the governance process.

Constitution and Bylaws—There is no provision for interim replacements for Vice President or Secretary. Those provisions should be written. The section of the bylaws that determines the Senate Calendar must also be rewritten to bring it into alignment with the new academic calendar.

Appointments and Personnel—There are two important issues for this year: 1) how do we bring down the number of full-time emergency appointments and replace these with full-time tenure track appointments; 2) we need to pay attention to the ratio of full-time to part-time teaching faculty. President Barrington asks the committee to look at both issues, especially in light of how we can utilize our faculty to best serve our students.

Committee on Committees and Committee on Academic Freedom—These committees need to work together to review our bylaws to make sure they are in accord with the AAUP document On the Relationship of Faculty Governance to Academic Freedom.  Also review and possibly redraft the document Functions and Responsibilities of Standing Committees of the CCSU Faculty (section 4.21 of the CCSU Faculty Handbook) which is now more than a decade old.
