RESOLUTION AFFIRMING THE MINIMAL STANDARDS FOR GOVERNANCE PROCEDURES FOR THE COLLEGES AND SCHOOLS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT AUSTIN

The Faculty Council endorses the following minimal standards for college and school governance procedures.

1. Colleges and schools have at least one annual meeting.
2. The curriculum committee ought to either be elected by the faculty or, if the curriculum committee is appointed by a chair or a dean, the curriculum changes ought to be circulated to the full college faculty for approval, protest, or no protest.
3. The college and school faculty vote on and be made aware of these procedures.


The colleges and schools should meet these three minimum standards, and if they do not do so the Faculty Council will no longer process approval for their curriculum revisions that have been proposed.
