At a special meeting called last week to consider the Board of Visitors’ (BOV) recommended changes to the Faculty Handbook from the BOV’s ad hoc committee on Faculty Rewards and Incentives, the Faculty Senate approved the changes with only one disagreement.
The resolution approved by the senate calls for retaining current language in the handbook regarding prior service on a fixed-term appointment in consideration of tenure, with the rationale that the BOV’s recommended change was ambiguous. The senate also voted to retain two paragraphs introducing the section on criteria for evaluation of faculty that had been dropped inadvertently from the BOV’s final recommendations.
