Action Items

April 23, 2018

Motion (Epps for Exec): I move to approve the revisions to the by-laws, section 4.5, Faculty Senate Selection of the Faculty Representative to the ETSU Board of Trustees.

Justification: The two year term of the faculty representative to the ETSU BOR expires in April. The election cycle needs to be adjusted in order to elect the faculty rep prior to the April meeting of the BOT in the year in which the faculty member's term expires.

March 26,2018

Motion (McGarry): I move that the Senate issue a letter of concern on the model of the letter attached (DRAFT letter of concern - listed with March 12 agenda).

Justification: The dissolution of the Classroom Utilization Committee is troubling because it is now unclear how faculty will influence control of classroom space, and on a more general level, the process whereby it was dissolved indicates a disturbing lack of transparency and disregard of shared governance principles. A response on our part is called for to show that these principles are important to us.


Dec. 4, 2017

Motion: To repair the language in the by-laws addressing the replacement of senators who resign mid-term. Passed (Rules suspended; need to replace two senators and needed process in place for doing so).



Nov. 20, 2017

Motion: (Drinkard-Hawkshawe; amended by Littleton): The Faculty Senate Teaching Workgroup will be
charged to review ETSU's requirement for students' assessment of faculty and courses and the Workgroup
should make recommendations for change. Passed

Motion (Epps on behalf of Executive Committee): To affirm the resolution passed by the University of Memphis regarding support of DACA "Dreamers.” Passed

Motion (Epps on behalf of the PGIA committee): To approve the revision of the PGIA guidelines proposed by the PGIA committee. Passed



Nov. 6, 2017

Motion (Epps): That the ETSU Faculty Senate affirm the proposed changes to the constitution of the Tennessee University Faculty Senates (TUFS). Passed

Motion (Drinkard-Hawkshawe): A Faculty Senate committee should be organized to review the Student Grade Appeal process. A group meeting - student, faculty, Chair- should be required before a student can appeal a grade. Failed



April 24, 2017

Motion (McDowell): We do not support out-sourcing facility management at ETSU. We value these members of the ETSU community, and oppose efforts to remove them from the ETSU payroll and benefits program.

Justification: To enable senators to get feedback and input from their constituents before voting. Passed


Motion (Senator Flora) to amend the by-laws, Section 1.5.4.5. Faculty Senate Selection of Faculty Representative to ETSU Governing Board – the election will be open for 14 days from the date the ballot is distributed to the faculty.
