Faculty Congress Motion 14-15-007

Establishment of the Faculty Development Committee and recommendation to approve the review of all information considered 'faculty development' presented by Faculty Congress and the UH Hilo Administration

  • Whereas, faculty development is a vital role within a healthy, functional university.

    • Whereas, faculty development opportunities are provided by different sources within the university;
    • Therefore, we propose establishment of the Ad Hoc Faculty Congress Faculty Development Committee with the responsibilities of review and coordination of faculty development opportunities in collaboration with the Office of the VCAA office. The Faculty Development Committee will follow the responsibilities approved by Faculty Congress and maintain an updated notice of faculty development opportunities.
  • UH Hilo Faculty Congress Vote: Yes – 15, No – 0, Abstain - 0

  • Motion does not need to be sent forward. Since it established an Ad Hoc committee, the FC Charter and Bylaws will need to be changed before the committee can move from Ad Hoc status to a Permanent Committee. The Academic Policy Committee will now update the ByLaws and Charter. When complete, they will be brought back to FC for a vote. If the vote passes, the committee will be made permanent.
