Unit policy on voting rights
Tenure-track and tenured home unit faculty and tie unit faculty are entitled to vote on the hiring and review of tenure and non-tenure track faculty. All home and tie unit lecturers and senior lecturers are entitled to vote on issues associated with teaching and curriculum, and the unit's recommendation for the position of Unit Director.
Home and tie unit senior lecturers are entitled to vote on the hiring and review of non-tenure track faculty, issues associated with teaching and curriculum and the unit’s recommendation for the position of Unit Director.
Faculty may extend voting privileges as needed. Petitions for such privileges will be submitted when personnel are hired and/or at the first faculty meeting each fall.
Voting rights only apply to areas within faculty governance which call for faculty votes.
Those not entitled to vote are encouraged to voice their opinions in an advisory capacity.
