A Progress Report by The Committee on University Governance.
Florida Atlantic Univ., Boca Raton.
Based on its conclusion that a unicameral senate would be both desirable and feasible, Florida Atlantic University's Committee on University Governance drafted a proposal to establish a "single university-wide Senate, which truly represents Administration, Faculty, and Students." The two parts of the proposal present (1) the composition of the Senate membership and procedures for selecting Senate members; and (2) the composition and number of Senate committees. This report discusses both parts in detail. The proposed 139-member Senate would comprise 70 faculty members, 48 students, and 21 administrative officers, all of whom would serve one-year terms. Fifty faculty members would be elected by college and 20 others would be elected at-large. Four student members would be elected from each of eight colleges in the fall of each year; the three student officers and 21 student members-at-large would be elected in yearly spring elections. No election procedure would be required for the administrative officers, all of whom would be ex officio members. Senate committee members would serve one-year terms on 11 committees that would deal with the following matters: university budget; steering and policy; promotion, tenure, and honorary degrees; academic freedom and due process; admissions and petitions; curriculum; research; library; publications; physical space; and cultural affairs and activities.
