Amendment and Revision

Suggestions for amendments or alterations to the handbook may be initiated at any time by the Chairperson or by any faculty member.  Proposed changes are subject to discussion, revision, and recommendation by the FAC.  When a proposed alteration constitutes a major change in Departmental policy or practice the Chairperson may seek the recommendations of the entire faculty.  If the Chairperson concurs with a proposed alteration or amendment, he or she recommends the change to the Dean of the College.  All changes to the handbook are subject to the approval of the Dean of the College. The Dean may direct that the handbook be amended or revised to reflect changes in College or University policy.
