Definition of Constituency Senates
There shall be constituency senates for the faculty, professional, support and student constituencies. These bodies shall be elected from the constituency membership and shall meet regularly and as needed to act on issues of constituency and University concern. If the administration makes a decision contrary to the recommendations of a constituency assembly and the reasons for the decision are not judged by the constituency assembly to be sufficient to explain the contrary recommendation, then the officers of the constituency assembly shall be able to appeal the decisions to the next higher administrator or consultative level or, if necessary, to the Board. Constituency senates shall have standing committees with specific responsibility for certain University matters. Constituency senates are responsible for the continuing study of their own composition and rules and shall maintain structure and procedures that shall achieve an effective representation for constituency concerns.
