Received: 09/03/2013
Decision Date: 05/16/2018
Decision: The ERG Committee voted to send the revised Plan to the SEC for consideration.
Actions: In May 2013, EDUC notified the Senate that it had made amendments to its Plan of Organization and asked that the Senate review and approve its revised Plan. The ERG and Faculty Affairs Committees agreed to review the amendments to the Plan of Organization in the fall of 2013.

ERG Committee:

ERG returned its initial feedback on the Plan in December 2013. After receiving a new revision in September 2014, the ERG Committee again provided feedback and met with a representative from EDUC in January 2015. EDUC was not able to continue work on the Plan for some time. In September 2017, members of the ERG Committee met with the dean of EDUC and the chair of its College Senate to align expectations and establish a timeline for completing revisions. In November 2017, EDUC submitted a new draft. Over the next several months, the committee and EDUC resolved remaining ambiguities and contradictions in the Plan. EDUC submitted a revised version in May.

The ERG Committee voted to approve the Plan by an email vote concluding on May 16, 2018. The Plan was approved by a vote of the College of Education Assembly concluding on June 14, 2018.

Faculty Affairs Committee:

The Faculty Affairs Committee received the APT Section of the EDUC Plan of Organization in September 2013 and assigned it to a subcommittee for review. The subcommittee presented its recommendations to the committee in October 2013. The committee decided to draft comments on the Plan to be sent back to the college.

In September 2014, EDUC returned a revised Plan for further review. The APT Section was reviewed by the subcommittee. The committee asked for further information on three questions. After satisfactory responses by the College, the APT section was then submitted to the full committee for review. At its meeting on January 26, 2015, the FAC voted to approve the section. The committee completed its review of EDUC's Appointment, Evaluation, & Promotion Policy for Professional Track Faculty in May 2016.
Next Step: SEC Review
