The Chair shall be responsible for scheduling Department meetings at least once each semester during the regular academic year for the purpose of keeping faculty informed on matters of Department business, as stipulated in the TT faculty CBA. (Department elections will, however, be held normally by mail or electronic ballot, not at such meetings.) The Chair will consult with FAC on the agenda whenever times permits. FAC may also request that the Chair schedule a Department meeting and may set the agenda for the meeting.
Department meetings normally will be open to all faculty (including full-time NTT and part-time), staff, and undergraduate and graduate students.
