Documents "For Discussion Only"

A. When a document embodying a policy recommendation is to be considered by the Faculty, the Dean shall first place the document on the agenda of the meeting "for discussion only." 

B. At the meeting at which a document "for discussion only" is first presented, the Faculty may take final action on the document only in unamended form. Approval requires a two-thirds majority of Faculty present. Otherwise, as normal procedure, the document shall be placed on the agenda of the next Faculty meeting "for action."

C. This rule may be suspended upon a two-thirds vote of Faculty present at a Faculty meeting.
