IV. Action to approve revisions to Graduate School Bylaws
Provost Garrison asked Dr. Ron Atlas, Dean of Graduate School, to present this proposal. Dean Atlas indicated that the Southern Association of Colleges & Schools (SACS) requires that graduate courses be taught by graduate Faculty with the appropriate terminal degree and that these faculty be periodically reviewed. Currently, when one becomes a member of the Graduate Faculty it is a lifetime appointment with no review. Dean Atlas reported that the revised bylaws create a two-tired Graduate Faculty so junior faculty are eligible to begin mentoring students and teaching graduate courses. The revised bylaws will also incorporate the existing REDBOOK requirement for Periodic Career Review as a periodic review of Graduate Faculty Status. Dr. Garrison noted that these revisions will strengthen the institution. Mr. Porter made a motion, which Mr. Helman seconded, to approve the
Presidents recommendation to approve the Revised Bylaws of the Graduate School (copy attached).
V. Action item to approve changes to the REDBOOK
Provost Garrison introduced Dale Billingsley to report on REDBOOK changes. Dr. Billingsly reported that at the Board's request, a committee comprised of three deans as well as past and present faculty chairs has reviewed chapters 3 and 4 of the REDBOOK. Dissatisfied deans and faculty were included in the review process. The revised document was taken to faculty senate and adopted with only one exception. Dr. Billingsley asked the committee to postpone the recommendation until the June meeting to assure the revisions are moving in the right direction. There are several other issues that need to be assessed. Dr. Garrison noted that the revision process is going smoothly thanks to Dr. Billingsley and the past and present faculty leadership.
VI. Other Business
There was no other business.
Mr. Porter made the motion that Ms. Shuter seconded, which passed unanimously, to adjourn the meeting at 4:30 p.m.
