RESOLUTION CONCERNING MEMBERSHIP OF THE COLLEGE COUNCIL FOR THE COLLEGE OF EDUCATION
WHEREAS: the Faculty Handbook is not specific as to the voting/non-voting membership of a College Council, we find that Chapter 1, pp. 82-83, of the Handbook is sufficiently clear that the Chair of each Department and at least one elected faculty representative from each Department are members of a College Council.
"Each college and the School of Polytechnic Studies have a College/School Council to advise the dean on matters of college-or school-wide interest and importance.
Membership: The departmental chairpersons and at least one faculty member elected from each department. The council is chaired by the dean."
WHEREAS: The Faculty Senate concludes that by adopting the recommended membership listed below, the College of Education's College Council will more closely match the membership of other College Councils at Southeast, specifically, that the Dean of the College, the Department Chair, and Faculty representatives are voting members of a College Council, though any number of outside interested parties may participate in Council business as non-voting advisors to the Council.
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT: For the Academic Year 2011-2012, The Faculty Senate recommends the College of Education adopt the following structure for their College Council:
Dean - College of Education (serves as the Chairperson of the College Council, and votes only in the case of a tie)
Chair - Ed Leadership & Counseling
Chair - Elementary, Early & Special Education
Chair - Middle and Secondary Education
Faculty Representative - Ed. Leadership & Counseling
Faculty Representative - Elementary, Early & Special Education
Faculty Representative - Middle and Secondary Education
Representative - Certification/Assessment
Representative - Public School (Counseling)
Representative - Public School (MSE)
Representative - Public School (EESE)
Representative - Graduate Student
