All resolutions adopted by a Senate committee* shall be forwarded to the Chair of the Senate Consultative Committee and the Senate office (for information) and to the Clerk of the Senate for distribution at the next Senate meeting for information.
"Resolution" means any statement of the committee, however identified, the wording of which has been agreed upon by the committee and upon which a vote (formal or otherwise) has been taken. A resolution is not a policy document; it expresses the sense of the committee on the matter at hand, it may or may not seek further action, and it does not require Senate approval nor does it require the approval of the Senate Consultative Committee to be distributed at a Senate meeting.
The reporting of a resolution adopted by a committee, and its distribution at a Senate meeting, will not imply Senate endorsement. It will provide information to the University and its governance system about actions being taken by its committees.
All resolutions to be reported shall be provided to the Senate office at least three working days before the Senate meeting at which the resolution will be distributed, and the resolutions will appear in Senate minutes labeled "for information only."
Adopted unanimously 12/3/98 by the Senate Consultative Committee
