Motion that the Faculty Senate supports the practice that individual faculty can have a Faculty Association resource person attend department faculty meetings. Our policy is that any faculty member can request such an individual and the FA President will designate the resource person and that person will attend. It is important that such requests be communicated to the FA President, either directly or through the FA office. Requests to the FA President will be anonymous. The FA resource person should advise the department, through the Chair and in advance of the meeting, of the contractual or process issue(s) that were raised in the request for a resource person. The attendance of the resource person should be limited to those meetings or portions of meetings in which the specific concern(s) are to be discussed. When the department is notified, they will receive a copy of this policy.
