Motion from Senate Executive Committee regarding by-law changes for the Committee on Faculty Committees:
- On Senate committees with 8 or fewer faculty members, no more than one member from any given department may serve.
- On Senate committees with 9 or more faculty members, no more than two members from any given department may serve.
- The one exception to the above conditions pertains to the Budget Review Committee. Since the Vice-Chair of Faculty Senate becomes a member of the Joint Planning and Budget Committee after the rest of the membership is determined, the department affiliation of the Vice-Chair of the Senate will not affect the eligibility of other members already selected for the committee. If alternates are selected at a later date, the department affiliation of the Vice-Chair of the Senate will be considered.
 The motion is based on recommendations from the Committee on Faculty Committee 2007 report. Please see http://www.uwlax.edu/FacultySenate/41st/5-8-07/CFC%20Rpt%205-4-07.htm for the full report.
