The participation in the sharing of governance of the College of Business shall be through regularly scheduled faculty meetings and college teams.
College teams will include the following:
College of Business faculty meetings shall be held no less than once each academic semester. It shall be the responsibility of the dean, with input from the College Coordinating Team, to convene the faculty. In addition, the College Coordinating Team may call meetings of the faculty of the College of Business for consideration of any item deemed appropriate.
If the dean and the College Coordinating Team agree, such meetings may count as the required faculty meeting to be held each semester. For faculty meetings which it calls, the College Coordinating Team shall establish the rules of the agenda, which shall not contravene these bylaws.
The College Coordinating Team, acting as an advisory body, shall provide faculty, staff, and students of the College of Business with a means of input on broad policy issues, mission, and strategic plan. The Coordinating Team shall be responsible for coordinating efforts across college teams and assuring effective communication among faculty, staff, students, and administrative leaders.
The team will be actively involved in long-range strategic planning issues and will involve other faculty, staff, and students as appropriate. The Coordinating Team will also work with the dean in guiding the college toward meeting appropriate standards of its accrediting body. The College Coordinating Team will be responsible for assuring annual elections of eligible faculty to the four college teams, and shall also administer all other college-wide elections.
Human Resource Development Team, acting as an advisory body, shall provide Appointment, Salary, Promotion, and Tenure policies and procedures through an established committee procedure consistent with the policies and guidelines of Illinois State University and shall recommend, implement, and oversee activities and resources directed toward the continuing professional development of all faculty and staff of the College of Business.
The College Faculty Status Committee, or a successor required by university ASPT procedures, shall form the nucleus of the Human Resource Development Team (see Article IV, Section 4). The members of the CFSC shall make all decisions required by ASPT procedures independently from any other members of the Human Resource Development Team.
The Curriculum Team shall recommend, implement, and oversee activities and resources directed toward evaluating, improving, and monitoring the curriculum on both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
The Technology and Physical Environment Team shall recommend, implement, and oversee activities and resources directed toward advancing and enhancing technology and the physical environment for teaching and learning in ways that support and enhance the college’s mission and strategic plan.
Constituent Satisfaction and Outreach Team shall recommend, implement, and oversee activities and resources directed toward improving and enhancing constituent satisfaction in ways that are consistent with the college’s mission and strategic plan.
