DOCUMENTS OF THE GENERAL FACULTY
FIRST SPECIAL MEETING OF THE FACULTY COUNCIL FOR 2000-2001
This meeting has been called by the Executive Committee of the Faculty Council to receive President Faulkner's response to the Council's legislation concerning the Provisional Admission Program, approved by the Council on October 16.
The following rules concerning the meeting are from the Rules and Regulations of the Faculty Council (III.E.7), which may be found at http://www.utexas.edu/faculty/council/pages/rulesreg.htm).
"Should the President object to any recommendation of the Faculty Council or of the General Faculty that requires the approval of the U.T. System Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs or the U.T. System Board of Regents, he or she shall make those objections known either directly to the Council or through the Executive Committee so that the objections may be answered and the Council may have the opportunity to modify, withdraw, or reaffirm the proposed legislation before it is transmitted by the President to the U.T. System Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs. The final version of the legislation that is approved by the Faculty Council or by the General Faculty shall be transmitted by the President to the U.T. System Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and, if necessary, to the U.T. System Board of Regents, along with such recommendations as the President and, if necessary, the U.T. System Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs may choose to make."
John R. Durbin, Secretary
