MINUTES OF THE REGULAR FACULTY COUNCIL MEETING OF
MAY 6, 2013


VIII. NEW BUSINESS.

C. Schedule of Meetings of the Faculty Council in 2013-2014 (D 10325).

Chair Hilley reported that Professor Ronn had filed a protest regarding the listing of the proposed Council meeting dates for the 2013-14 academic year, which had been distributed prior to the meeting. Professor Ronn explained that his recommendation was to have Council meetings on Fridays rather than Mondays, so that those faculty members who teach on Monday afternoons would be able to attend the meetings. He said he expected fewer individuals would have conflicts on Fridays than on Mondays. Chair Hilley responded that the proposed dates had been approved by the president and had been saved on his and the provost’s calendars, thus making it very difficult to change them. She noted that a request to change the meeting day would have to go through the General Faculty Rules and Governance Committee and would best be handled in the fall semester. She then suggested that the recommendation be tabled until the fall semester when it could be sent to the rules and governance committee for consideration. Professor Ronn agreed, and the proposal was tabled.
