RESOLUTION TO RECOMMEND TO THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES THE ADOPTION OF THE 1999 EDITION OF THE FACULTY MANUAL

WHEREAS, the Faculty Manual serves as a source of information to faculty about a number of areas, including employment, campus governance, academic policies and procedures, and campus facilities and services; and

WHEREAS, the Faculty Manual reproduces academic, institutional, and employment policies developed by, among others, the Faculty Conference and Graduate Faculty Assembly, and Academic and Graduate Councils; which policies have been reviewed by the President and recommended to the Board of Trustees for adoption; and

WHEREAS, the Faculty Manual is routinely revised and updated as required by procedures outlined in the Manual, including the convening by the Vice-President of Academic Affairs of a representative committee whose membership is outlined in the Faculty Manual; and

WHEREAS, this committee drafted revisions to the Faculty Manual which were shared chapter by chapter with the faculty and reviewed at meetings of the Faculty Conference; and

WHEREAS, the revised Faculty Manual reflects the recommendations of the campus community and legal counsel, and contains requirements of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and the Commission on Higher Education; and

WHEREAS the Vice-President for Academic Affairs submitted the completed draft of the 1999 edition of the Faculty Manual to the President; and whereas the President has reviewed the document thoroughly, and forwards it to the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees with his recommendation that it be adopted; and

WHEREAS the Executive Committee has reviewed the Faculty Manual and finds that it represents a carefully articulated set of policies and procedures that will best serve the needs of the Winthrop community; and furthermore commends both the faculty and the administration for a process characterized by extensive communication and widespread involvement;

THEREFORE LET IT BE RESOLVED THAT the Executive Committee recommends to the full Board of Trustees that the 1999 edition of the Faculty Manual be officially adopted.
