  • That section 4.22 of the By-Laws of the Faculty Senate be amended by adding "and the Vice President for Student Affairs or designee" to the list of ex-officio members of the Academic Standards and Calendar Committee. *

7. New Business

*NOTE: Amendments to the Faculty Senate By-Laws require a 2/3-majority vote.
