  2. Changing the constitution of the Faculty Senate by adding to the University Handbook (XVII.B.3.b.1) the following language:
    Any department that wishes to change its "area" can petition the Faculty Senate, in writing (electronic submission), providing a rationale for such change. The petition must be submitted no later than the end of the 4th week of the fall semester preceding the effective date of the proposed change. After receipt of the request for change, the Faculty Senate will hold a two-week comment period, during which the responses from other departments in both affected "areas" will be solicited. The Senate will then vote at its next meeting on the request. If approved, the change will be submitted to the fall meeting of the General Faculty for a vote.

  5. Open discussion of transition to a 3-4 teaching load.
