MINUTES OF THE REGULAR FACULTY COUNCIL MEETING OF
May 9, 2011

I.
REPORT OF THE SECRETARY.

Secretary Sue Greninger (human development and family sciences) welcomed everyone and explained to new members joining the Council next fall that the secretary’s report is posted monthly as a means of keeping track of legislation as it passes through the approval process. She reported that final approval had been secured for the committee chair of the Faculty Advisory Committee on Budgets (FACB) to be elected by the committee rather than appointed by the president. In addition, she said the following proposed changes to the Handbook of Operating Procedures were approved by the UT System administration: Faculty Council meeting attendance policy, General Faculty parliamentarian description, and General Faculty and Faculty Council secretary’s academic term of service. She also reported that President Powers had appointed Professor Hunter March (music) to the Intercollegiate Athletics Council for Women and Professor Mia Carter to the Intercollegiate Athletics Council for Men. Secretary Greninger then asked if there were any corrections or additions to the current monthly report (D 8676-8682), and there were none.
