Trustees to decide on representation

          ZANESVILLE, Ohio — Ohio University’s Board of Trustees will vote today on whether or not to add a new representation to Faculty Senate.

          Representation for the Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs, an OU academic unit, will be put to vote today after Faculty Senate passed the resolution in September 2010, according to a previous Postarticle.

          Senate guidelines assign academic units one representative per 17 tenured or tenure track faculty. The Voinovich School has only seven Group I faculty members, creating concerns about disproportionate


          According to the faculty constitution, a unit must be a college or regional campus to receive senate representation. Representation for Voinovich School remains controversial because it is an entity with tenured faculty but not part of a college, according to a previous Postarticle.

          At yesterday’s Governance Committee Meeting, Trustee David Brightbill said the board will use a consent agenda to vote on the school’s representation.

          “I would remind everyone that it is on the consent agenda, so it will just be a part of the overall vote for that consent agenda tomorrow,” Brightbill said at yesterday’s meeting.
