In response to the Faculty Senate’s charge, we present for your consideration three separate proposals dealing with restructuring of theKetteringUniversityfaculty governance system.

This is Part Three: Committee Revisions. In this part, we propose changes to the Faculty Senate Bylaws. Such changes must be approved by both a two-thirds majority of those voting (with notice) at a Faculty Senate meeting. These changes do not require a Faculty-wide vote.

On the following pages, we propose the creation of eight Senate committees:

  • Curriculum (Representative Faculty)
  • Promotion, Tenure, and Ethics (Representative Faculty)
  • Policy Review (General Faculty)
  • International Programs (General Faculty)
  • Senior Thesis (General Faculty)
  • Recruitment and Retention (General Faculty)
  • Academic Computing (General Faculty)
  • Resources (General Faculty)
