BY-LAWS REVIEW COMMITTEE OF THE FACULTY SENATE
Report for the year 1999-2000
Dave Hanson, Chairperson
At the beginning of the year the chairperson of the Executive Committee was sent
the following e-mail message: "I propose calling a meeting of the By-Laws Review
Committee if the Faculty Senate, the Executive Committee of the Faculty Senate, or
'The Administration' asks us to address particular issue(s) --- and not to call one
otherwise. Are there issues that the Executive Committee wishes us to address?"
THE COMMITTEE WAS NEVER ASKED, BY ANYBODY, TO CONSIDER
ANY ISSUES OR BY-LAWS CHANGES!
In April the Executive Committee proposed to the faculty, not to the By-Laws Review Committee, various by-laws changes. An attempt was made to call a meeting of the By-Laws Review Committee to discuss the proposed changes, but timing was a problem since the proposals were already scheduled for presentation
to the Faculty Senate, the committee membership seemed supportive of the
proposed changes, and there was some opposition to "jumping on the bandwagon
after the fact" when this committee should have been involved in producing the
proposals in the first place. Therefore no meeting was scheduled.
