  • Motion to suspend Handbook section 1.5.1.1 (triennial revision of Handbook)                                                                                                                                              Rationale: Because of the impending changes to Academic Senate and standing committee structure over the coming year, and because of impending reorganization in the Provost’s office, Faculty Council recommends that the triennial revision of the Handbook be postponed until next academic year. The current practice of updating the electronic version of the handbook with each revision as it is approved reduces the need for a comprehensive triennial review and accompanying hardcopy revision.
