HS3 Meetings

HS3.1 Meetings may be called by the Chair of the Faculty or by the Executive Committee. At the written request of ten voting members of the Faculty, the Chair must call a meeting. The Chair must call at least one meeting in each academic year. (Am 2 Jun 83)

HS3.1.1 A quorum consists of twenty-five members of the Faculty. In the absence of a quorum and/or of a written objection received by the Chair before the appointed time of the meeting and with unanimous consent of all present, all items in the call submitted for approval by the Executive Committee shall be considered approved by the Faculty of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. In case of objection, the Executive Committee may submit such items to a mail ballot.

HS3.1.2 A motion to submit a measure to mail ballot has precedence over a motion for a vote in meeting.

HS3.1.3 The Chair shall send, at least five days before each meeting, copies of the call for every meeting of the Faculty, together with all pertinent documents, to every member of the Faculty. The Faculty shall not change curricular requirements of the college or its departments or change these bylaws at the meetings at which such proposals for change are first made unless notice is previously given to all members of the Faculty in a call to the meeting.

HS3.1.4 These bylaws constitute primary rules of order for meetings of the Faculty and of the committees of the Faculty. The order of business is that prescribed in bylaw 4.01 of the Division. Questions of order not covered by these bylaws are governed by Robert's Rules of Order, Newly Revised.

HS3.1.5 The minutes of every meeting of the Faculty shall be sent by the Secretary-Parliamentarian to every member of the Faculty within ten days after the meeting.
