The Faculty Rights and Responsibilities Committee shall make recommendations to the Senate on matters including, but not limited to, promotion, tenure, grievance, and workload.

The committee should work to complete the charges of the committee as received from the Senate Chair in addition to addressing matters brought to the committee by constituents and other stakeholders.

The following is a suggested timeline:

In August

Elect committee Chair/Co-chairs and inform the Faculty Senate Chair and Secretary. Receive charges from the Senate Chair.

In September

Receive charges from the Faculty Senate Chair (from Chair's report or from Executive Committee's liaison to the Rights and Responsibilities Committee).  Then monthly accept additional charges as distributed.

Before the regular meeting in May

The committee chair should prepare a year-end report to present at the regular May Faculty Senate meeting. The report should include a summary of the committee’s progress on assigned charges as well as recommendations for charges for the next year’s committee. When completed, forward report to the Senate Secretary for inclusion with the Senate agenda when distributed.

In May

The committee chair shall submit a written annual report to the Faculty Senate at the May meeting.
