The University Record, September 9, 1998

Bylaws changes proposed

From the Office of the Secretary of the University

In December 1977, the Regents approved the establishment of the School of Education and Human Services at U-M-Flint. The governance structure for the schools requires an executive committee, which must be incorporated in the Regents' Bylaws, and the school needs to be added to a list of other schools. In addition, the College of Pharmacy wants to make membership and structural changes in its executive committee.

Proposed changes and additions to the Bylaws affecting these units follow. Comments on the changes are due in the Office of the Secretary of the University by Sept. 23. They may be sent via Campus Mail to Room 2013, Fleming Administration Building 1340; via e-mail to public.comments@umich.edu; or by fax to 763-8011.

 

Proposed new Bylaw 11.073: The University of Michigan-Flint School of Education and Human Services Executive Committee

The executive committee shall consist of the dean and four full-time members of the governing faculty of senate rank, each to be appointed for a two-year term by the Regents on recommendation by the president. The members of the committee should be broadly representative to include members from each department in the school and shall not be eligible for reappointment until after the lapse of one year. The terms shall be adjusted so that two vacancies shall occur each year. The dean shall chair the committee.
