A. Non-substantive Revisions to the Threatened Faculty Retrenchment Legislation (D 9987-10000)—

Past Faculty Council Chair Janet Staiger (past chair of the Faculty Rules and Governance Committee) presented a revised version of the legislation on threatened faculty retrenchment. She explained that the legislation was previously approved by UT Austin and sent to UT System, where Associate Vice Chancellor and Deputy General Counsel Sharphorn had been working with UT Austin on some language revisions.  Dr. Staiger reported that the Faculty Council leadership thought the revisions were non-substantive and actually provided a clearer and stronger policy than before.
