Article II: Making Resolutions

II

Section 1. Procedure for Making Resolutions

The procedure for making resolutions will be as follows:

  1. To propose a resolution, a senator must submit a draft to the Senate members at least ten working days prior to the next regular meeting.
  2. A resolution may be passed either by support from a simple majority, or the Senate may determine that the proposed resolution needs to be brought to the general faculty for a vote. Support from at least four senators is sufficient to send a resolution to a vote by the general faculty.
  3. A resolution passed by a simple majority of the Faculty Senate will be included in the minutes of the meeting in which the vote occurs.
  4. A resolution passed by a simple majority of the voting faculty will be included in the minutes of the meeting following its approval.
