Faculty Senate Resolution 00-01#16
Passed 5/2/01
Academic Dismissal Resolution

Whereas the Rules of the Board of Supervisors states that any recommendation concerning the termination of a tenured faculty member must be reviewed by a committee that includes faculty members,

Whereas the Rules of the Board of Supervisors does not specify the process for selecting members to the university level faculty review committee,

Whereas the proposed policy concerning academic dismissal will require the administrative appointment of an ad hoc committee, and

Whereas the University Tenure and Promotion Committee is an standing committee of tenured full professors of the General Faculty elected by the respective tenured and tenure-track faculty in each college,

Be it therefore resolved that the University Tenure and Promotion Committee serve as the university level faculty review committee regarding recommendations of termination of tenured faculty.
