 Term Limits

            Proposed by-laws change

            "Members who serve on the Promotion committee or Continuing and Term appointment committee of the College Senate are held to three years of consecutive service for their respective committee. This term of three years should overlap between divisions making up the committee to promote continuity. In the case where a division does not have the required qualified personnel to adhere to these term limits,  one of the following  action s should be voted on by the division : 1) the qualified member who has  completed his or her third year  can continue to serve on the committee in question until another qualified member within that division becomes eligible to serve and is voted in by their division , or 2)   the division may elect to leave the committee seat vacant until such a time when they have an additional division member eligible to serve ."

            Discussion: 

  • What is a qualified member? Review the original bylaws
  • Member is approved by the division
  • Item # 1 makes it seem that there is no real term limits but if you remove that item, then there may be inequitable representation
  • Division can elect to leave a seat empty
  • Creates quasi term limits
  • E-mail concerns or suggestions to K. MacLeod and J. Miller

 UFS Resolutions

            Joint Committee on Transfer and Articulation Resolution (7-30-08)

 Discussion:

  • Concerns with wording; restricts academic freedom
  • Will make all 2 year programs identical; schools will lose their uniqueness
  • If the Plenary does not approve is resolution then the Board of Trustees many create their own
  • Take back to your functional area and discuss

Motion (T. Hamblin) to table voting on this resolution but accept the other three (Resolution on the support for the mission and leadership of the Office for Diversity and Educational Equity, Resolution on Implementing the Recommendations of the New York State Commission on Higher Education, Resolution on the Effect of New York State's Budget on SUNY); seconded J.
