Full-Time Contract Faculty Planning Committee (2013-2014)

Full-time contract faculty members were elected from throughout the University to work with the Senate Committee on Organization and Governance (SCOG) on addressing the issue of contract faculty representation in our governance structures.

At the April 17, 2014 meeting of the University Senate, SCOG formally presented a proposal for the admission of Full-time Non-Tenure Track/Contract Faculty to the University Senate. At the same meeting, the University Senate voted in favor of formally accepting the proposal set forth by SCOG, and voted in favor of recommending that the University Board of Trustees amend the Bylaws of the University to implement SCOG's recommendations.

The University Board of Trustees voted in favor of incorporating the Senate proposals into the University Bylaws on June 11, 2014. The amended Bylaws became effective on September 1, 2014, creating the Full-Time Non-Tenure Track/Contract Faculty Senators Council.
