MOTION TO CHANGE THE COMPOSITION OF THE C-12 RESPONSIBILITIES, RIGHTS, AND WELFARE OF GRADUATE STUDENT ACADEMIC EMPLOYEES COMMITTEE

C-12 Responsibilities, Rights, and Welfare of Graduate Student Academic Employees Committee

COMPOSITION: At least five members of the General Faculty, one staff graduate coordinator, and at least three students who are teaching assistants (at least one), assistant instructors (at least one), or graduate research assistants (at least one). Student members shall be appointed by the president in the fall from a panel of names submitted by the Graduate Student Assembly. In addition, every year the chair of the Faculty Council shall appoint two members of the Faculty Council for one-year terms as members of the committee. The chair of Graduate Assembly shall appoint one member of the Graduate Assembly for a one-year term as a voting member of the committee. The committee shall elect its own chair and vice chair, who shall be members of the General Faculty. One representative from the Graduate School shall serve as a non-voting administrative adviser.

Rationale: The sole change is to add a member of the Graduate Assembly as a voting member of the committee. The Graduate Assembly has legislative powers concerning graduate student academic employees, e.g. "graduate student programs and student welfare, including teaching and research appointments" and "graduate student support". The C-12 committee would benefit from having a liaison from the Graduate Assembly on the C-12 committee. The request for this change was initiated by Victoria Rodriguez and Pauline Strong, and received unanimous support from the C-12 committee members in 2007-2008. There were no objections from the current 2009-2010 C-12 committee.

Submitted by Brian L. Evans, Faculty Council Member 2008-present, and former chair, C-12 committee, 2007-2008.
