Resolution for Change in Constituency of the Administrator Evaluation Committee
Whereas results of administrator evaluations are reported to the Provost, and
Whereas the Provost is the chief academic officer of the university, responsible for ensuring appropriate evaluation of deans and other academic administrators of the university,
Therefore, the Steering Committee recommends that the composition of the Senate Administrator Evaluation Committee be expanded to include a representative designated by the Provost, who holds faculty rank and tenure. Such an expansion in membership will require that the current description of the committee in the University Senate Constitution and the Faculty Handbook be revised accordingly.
Additions to the section are marked in boldface, below.
