FACULTY SENATE RECAP
Thursday, November 8, 2018
A. ACTION ITEMS
Curriculum Proposal – Category I
Allen Thompson, Curriculum Council co-chair, presented for approval the below curricular proposal:
Action: Motion to approve the BA, BS in Arts, Media and Technology #10330 passed with 59 votes in support, 1 opposed and 2 abstentions.
Action: Motion to approve the October Faculty Senate minutes passed with 57 votes in support and 4 abstentions.
Faculty Senate Slate of Candidates
Faculty will vote on two officer ballots this Fall:
The elected candidate will immediately assume the President-Elect duties and will be installed as the Faculty Senate President at the January 10, 2019 Faculty Senate meeting.
The reason for this special election is that the former Faculty Senate President-Elect, Alix Gitelman, was recently appointed to the position of Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education. Because her appointment is an Executive Level position, Alix is not eligible to continue as President-Elect. Those in Executive Levels 1-3 (deans and above) are represented by the Faculty Senate, but are not eligible to be elected to represent colleagues.
There were no President-Elect nominations from the floor.
Action: The nominations were declared closed.
2. Immediate Past President Bob Mason presented the 2018 Slate of Candidates for: Senate President-Elect, three new members of the Executive Committee (EC) and one Interinstitutional Faculty Senate (IFS) Senator. The President-Elect typically serves for one year, and then automatically assumes the presidency of the Faculty Senate; EC members serve a two-year term; and IFS Senators serve a three-year term.
These are the normal Faculty Senate officer elections that occur every Fall.
President-Elect – There were no nominations from the floor.
Action: The President-Elect nominations were declared closed.
Interinstitutional Faculty Senate – Amy Bourne, College of Business, nominated herself for IFS.
Action: The Interinstitutional Faculty Senate nominations were declared closed.
Executive Committee – There were no nominations from the floor.
Action: The Executive Committee nominations were declared closed.
All eligible faculty vote on the President-Elect and Interinstitutional Faculty Senate Senator ballots. Current Senators vote on the Executive Committee candidates just prior to the December 6 Faculty Senate meeting.
Approval of the 2019 Apportionment Table
Action: The 2019 Apportionment Table was removed from the agenda and a vote will occur via email.

Declining Senator Election

Faculty Senate Elections – Faculty with Split Appointments
According to the Faculty Senate Bylaws, non-tenured faculty who have split appointments between two apportionment units may choose with which unit they wish to be apportioned for Faculty Senate purposes. For example, if a faculty member has a split appointment between Agricultural Sciences and Science, they may choose one or the other (FTE will not be split between apportionment units). This choice will determine Faculty Senate representation. Faculty not choosing where they wish to be apportioned, will be placed in an apportionment unit at the discretion of the Faculty Senate Office.
No later than Noon on November 14, please complete and submit the survey at http://oregonstate.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_brsBhXRSLh95GVT to indicate with which apportionment unit you wish to be affiliated
Tenured faculty will be apportioned in their tenure unit, with the exception of the following apportionment units: off-campus Extension, OSU-Cascades and Hatfield Marine Science Center
President-Elect, Executive Committee and IFS Elections
As provided in the Senate Bylaws, (Article VI, Section 3) and amended on October 6, 1977, "additional nominations may be made from the floor and the nominations shall be closed." The Executive Committee requires that if such nominations from the floor are made, the nominator must obtain, in advance, the nominee's willingness to serve if elected.
The University-wide election of the President-Elect and IFS Senator will be conducted between November 15 and December 5. Ballots will be distributed to all eligible voting members of the OSU faculty, in accordance with current Faculty Senate Bylaws. Voting must be completed no later than 5:00 PM on December 6 and results will be verified prior to the December 6 Faculty Senate meeting. The individual receiving the highest number of votes will be declared the winner in each of the elections.
Election of new members of the Executive Committee will be conducted electronically prior to the December 6 Faculty Senate meeting. Those candidates receiving the highest number of votes shall be elected. Tie votes shall be resolved by written ballot in a run-off election during the meeting.
