Senate
Motion: The College Faculty Senate requests that all proposed restructuring and/or changes to a division’s scope and purpose within the campuses at Tidewater Community College be routed through the affected campus Faculty Senate for appropriate discussion and comment. Results from these discussions and comment periods should be included with any proposal routed to the Executive Staff or President for approval.
Supporting statements:
1. To support the idea of shared governance, faculty and staff are the ones most affected by campus changes and would have unique knowledge of their effect on students, mission of the college, and its reputation with its associated communities.
2. Faculty and staff have the knowledge of history of why and how the current structure was put in place and will have to live with decisions for
very long periods as compared with the average length of time deans and
provosts are in place. We feel it is appropriate that their input be given
official recognition in these matters.
