Third Interim Report of the Special Committee of the Trustees; Statutes, Chapter II, The University Senate.
Columbia Univ., New York, NY.
In their third interim report, the Trustees of Columbia University responded to a proposal on the participation of faculty and students in the governance of the University on the University-wide level. Specifically, they adopted an Executive Committee resolution to establish a representative University Senate. The resolution had earlier been overwhelmingly approved by a vote of almost 44% of the faculty and students. The Special Committee recommended that the Deans of Columbia College and Graduate Faculties be included in the Senate membership and clarified the role of the Trustees. Accompanying the report are the Statutes of the University related to the establishment of the new Senate. The Statutes contain provisions on the election, eligibility, recall and terms of office of faculty, students, administrators, and other representatives, and on the responsibilities and powers of the Senate.
