K. Appeals to the Faculty Board of Review (See also Article V of this Constitution)

    Filing an Appeal
  1. Procedures of the Faculty Board of Review.
  • B. Procedures concerning cases involving academic freedom or tenure.
    1. The Faculty Board of Review shall set a hearing date that is mutually agreeable to the faculty member filing the appeal and to the administrative officer(s) whose actions are being appealed.
    2. After the hearing is concluded, the Faculty Board of Review shall, within 30 calendar days, write [a report containing its recommendation] its decision and distribute that decision to the faculty member filing the appeal and to the Chancellor.
    3. Within thirty (30) days of receiving the report of the Faculty Board of Review, the Chancellor shall provide a written statement to the Faculty Board of Review, stating the University's decision on the appeal and on the recommendation made by the Faculty Board of Review, including the reasons for that decision. The faculty member filing the appeal shall also receive a copy of the Chancellor's decision.
  • C. Procedures concerning cases involving promotion, salary adjustment, or the nature and conditions of work (including disciplinary actions taken with respect to a faculty member).
    1. The Faculty Board of Review shall hold a hearing in which the faculty member filing the appeal may explain and elaborate upon the written appeal made to the Faculty Board of Review.
    2. The faculty member filing the appeal has the right to request a closed hearing.
    3. The Faculty Board of Review may, at its discretion, meet separately with the faculty member filing the appeal and the administrative officer(s) involved in the appeal, or it may request that a joint meeting.
    4. Upon completing its investigations, and based on the information it has received, the Faculty Board of Review shall prepare a written report, including its recommendations, and submit that report to the appropriate administrative officer(s) and, thirty days thereafter, to the faculty member filing the appeal. Within thirty (30) days of receiving the report of the Faculty Board of Review, the administrative officer(s) to whom the report was submitted shall provide a written response to the Faculty Board of Review, including the decision made in the case and the reasons for that decision. A copy of this response shall also be provided to the faculty member filing the appeal.
    Rationale: The University Faculty Council has established minimum standards pertaining to the Faculty Board of Review. These changes are in the June 1997 edition of the Academic Handbook page 27. Procedures of our Faculty Board of Review need to be aligned as well as clarified.
