Policy Memorandum 1.301
Distribution of Seats
Distribution of Seats Among Colleges and Schools.
The number of voting members shall determine the number of seats
given to a college or school, provided, however, that a college
or schoolthat would not be entitled
seat on the basis of proportional representation, shall, nevertheless,
be given one "free" seat. The distribution shall be made
in two steps:
|| Ascertain those colleges or schools with fewer voting
members than the quotient obtained by dividing 40 into the total
number of voting members of the General Faculty. One seat shall
then be allotted to each such college or school.
|| Apportion 40 seats among those colleges and schools
with enough voting members to receive at least one seat by apportionment.
The quota for a seat by apportionment shall be the quotient from
dividing 40 into the sum of the number of voting members in such
colleges and schools. The number of seats allotted to each such
college or school shall be equal to the number of times its faculty
is the multiple of the prescribed quota, the undistributed balance
of the 40 seats to be allotted to the colleges or schools having
the largest remainders.
A reapportionment of the college and school seats shall be made in early
spring of even-numbered years. The Secretary of the General Faculty shall
make the apportionment applying the method prescribed above.
