According to Section 184.108.40.206 of the Faculty Handbook, the Faculty Handbook Revision Committee (FHRC) considers suggested revisions to the Handbook that are deemed substantive and pressing. The FHRC consists of six members, plus the chair-elect of the Faculty Senate, who serves as an ex officio member. Three members are from the tenured faculty and three members are academic administrators. From the six voting members, the FHRC elects a chair at the beginning of each academic year. You can view current members of the FHRC via the link on the left of this page.
This website has been established as a mechanism for the FHRC to solicit campus feedback on revisions currently under consideration. We hope that you will take advantage of this site and share your thoughts with the committee. If you would like to suggest a revision to the Faculty Handbook, send an email to me with the suggested change and rationale.
FHRC Chair 2012–2013
The FHRC expects to address a number of topics this year, and additionally, the septennial review will also be starting (with the next full edition to be approved in spring, 2014). Among the topics that we expect to address are the following:
For several of these topics, FHRC will solicit guidance from appropriate committees, e.g., for 1 – 3, from the Provost’s Committee on Tenure and Promotion, and for 6 from the Compensation Committee.
I would like to encourage faculty to provide feedback on any of these items, and also to alert FHRC about additional issues that should be addressed.
The FHRC welcomes input on proposed changes.
