Revision of the Make up of the Academic Staff Personnel Committee
REPORT FOR THE UNIVERSITY SENATE

University Senate Committee: Academic Staff Personnel Committee

Charge to the Committee (Brief History of the Issue – why the issue is being considered):
With the retirement of Jan Morse and the reorganization of the duties of that position, the committee make up is shifting. The changes suggested reflect the new situation.

Points discussed by the Committee:  Important to have a good balance of types of Academic Staff – from Senate, from outside Senate, Instructional Academic Staff and Professional / Administrative Academic Staff, so that all view points are represented.

Pros of Recommendation:

  • It reflects a balance of academic staff from all of the categories

Cons of Recommendation:

  • None

Motion for the University Senate
The University Senate Academic Staff Personnel Committee, by a vote of 6-0 (for, against) recommends that the University Senate accept the following adaptations to the make up of the Academic Staff Personnel Committee:
The Academic Staff Personnel Committee

a. Membership: The committee includes nine members: four academic staff senators, one of whom is the Academic Staff Representative and one of whom must be instructional academic staff, elected by the academic staff members of the University Senate; four academic staff, one of whom must be instructional academic staff, elected by the academic staff at large; and one administrator selected by the Chancellor the Academic Staff Representative to the UW System Academic Staff Council.  During a year when an academic staff member of the Senate has been elected to serve as Academic Staff Representative-elect, that person becomes an ex officio (and voting) member of the committee, increasing the number of members on the committee to ten. Three seats must be held by instructional academic staff members and five six seats must be held by administrative or professional academic staff members. One administrator selected by the Chancellor serves the committee as an ex officio, non-voting member.  Members shall serve three-year terms. (US 11/04; rev. new date)

b. Functions: The Academic Staff Personnel Committee shall consider and recommend policies affecting the academic staff in regard to status, salary, indefinite appointment, promotion, and working conditions. It shall also consider and recommend the practices and procedures for implementing those policies and serve as the primary agent for recommending revisions and amendments of the UW-Eau Claire Academic Staff Personnel Rules. (US 11/04)

Implementation date: On Approval

Jennifer Brockpahler, chair, on behalf of the
Academic Staff Personnel Committee
