Questioner: John White
Posed to: Chip Klostermeyer, Past President, UNF Faculty Association
Is there a rule regarding who has voting rights at Faculty Association meetings, and is there a system to determine whether there is a quorum? This question relates to who has the ability to vote on academic programs and academic changes.
FA Past President Chip Klostermeyer provided a response from the floor.
Everyone who is a faculty member (including Deans, Chairs, Librarians, etc.) are eligible to vote on Faculty Association agenda items. The quorum requirement for voting during Faculty Association meetings is 40 faculty. Information about these guidelines can be found in the Faculty Association bylaws (https://www.unf.edu/unffa/Bylaws.aspx
), Article III for Membership, and Article V, Section 15 for quorum requirements.
