4.0 Faculty Procedures
The institutions have a number of policies and procedures relevant to the faculty that do not require approval of the Board of Trustees/Regents to be adopted or amended. (See Section 2.16 for revision procedures.) Revisions of policies in Part IV become effective immediately upon approval by the Joint Faculty Assembly and both presidents (or at an alternate date stipulated in the policy itself). Revisions originating from either the Faculty Assembly or the presidents should be acted upon by the other party who will provide notification within 60 days of the academic calendar.
