Ordinance Concerning the Senate: Amendments and Additions to the Charter, Statutes and Ordinances of the University

The Senate shall have an opportunity to comment on any proposed amendment or addition to the Charter, Statutes or Ordinances of the University under the following procedure.

When proposals to change the Charter, Statutes or Ordinances are placed on the Agenda of a meeting of the Council, members of the Senate shall be informed of such proposals. If the proposals receive the required majority at that meeting of the Council, they shall be placed on the Agenda of the next meeting of the Senate. If there is no ordinary meeting of the Senate between the two meetings of the Council at which changes in the Charter, Statutes or Ordinances have to be approved and the proposed changes have not previously been approved by the Senate, then a special meeting of the Senate shall be called before the second meeting of the Council. Notice of not less than fourteen days shall be given to each member of the Senate before any such special meeting of the Senate.
