The Chair is also required to call a meeting upon receipt of a written request for a meeting by fifteen percent of the voting members of the Faculty (Am 21 Feb 2012) (Am 25 Feb 2014)
A quorum consists of thirty percent of the members of the general Faculty, or ten Faculty members, whichever number is greater. (Am 21 Feb 2012) (Am 25 Feb 2014)
A motion to submit a measure to mail or secret ballot has precedence over a motion for an open vote in a meeting. (Am 21 Feb 2012)
