SOUTHEAST MISSOURI STATE UNIVERSITY
FACULTY SENATE BILL 13-A-09
Approved by the Faculty Senate
February 13, 2013
BRIEF SUMMARY: This bill specifies the procedure portion of the existing Faculty Handbook section on The Department and the Department Chairperson (Chapter 1, Section G2).
REVISING "THE DEPARTMENT AND THE DEPARTMENT CHAIRPERSON" TO ESTABLISH A PROCEDURE SECTION
BE IT RESOLVED THAT: subject to the passage and approval of both this bill and its companion bill establishing a corresponding "procedures" section, Chapter 1, Section G2 of the Faculty Handbook be amended by replacing the existing content with the following "procedure" section (with the companion "policies" to follow it in the Handbook):
The Department and the Department Chairperson Procedure
Program and Curriculum Changes
If a proposed change comes before a college council and is approved by the college council, it is then submitted to the University Academic Council for review. If an objection is raised outside the college, the objection is taken before the college council of the objecting department. If the objection is sustained, the matter will be heard by the University Academic Council. Any department which wishes to challenge the action of its own college council may request a hearing before the University Academic Council. The Provost will normally follow the recommendation of the University Academic Council, deviating from its advice only for sound reasons openly defended before that body. Those proposals requiring approval at levels beyond the Provost are submitted by him/her to the appropriate persons.
