Proposed Amendment to the Bylaws of the Congress and Senate
ARTICLE II.
ORGANIZATION OF THE FACULTY SENATE
Section 3.  Duties of Senators


[Following the first paragraph referring to the expectation that Senators will attend all Senate meetings and serve on a Senate Standing Committee, add the new paragraph:]

“Three unexcused absences from a meeting of the full Senate and/or of a Senate Standing Committee in a semester will constitute a voluntary resignation from the assigned Committee and the Senate. The Senate will inform the member’s Department Chair of the resignation. An unexcused absence is when the member does not inform the chair of the Committee or the Senate of a reason for the absence.”
