Any senator may request within five days that an item be placed on the Faculty Senate agenda for consideration. Unless such a request is made, the Faculty Senate Chair will sign the curriculum proposals indicating approval and forward them to the Provost. If a request is made for Faculty Senate discussion of an item, the Faculty Senate Chair will delay action on that proposal until the Faculty Senate has completed its review.Other business included discussion regarding the 1999-2001 Bulletin deadlines.
