The agenda for the October Senate meeting will include the reports and other items of business listed below.
A. ACTION ITEM
    Faculty Panels for Hearing Election
    The Board's Administrative Rules define criteria and procedures for the imposition of sanctions for cause, including termination of appointment (OAR 580-21-320 through 580-21-375). If such a sanction is to be imposed, the faculty member is entitled to a formal hearing of charges by a hearing committee to be selected from a faculty panel that has been duly established. Nominees for each new panel are randomly selected. Faculty Panels for Hearing Committees are elected on even numbered years.

    NOTE: The OSU Legal Officer has determined that Professional Faculty are eligible for election.

    Ballots will be distributed at the meeting; balloting for ten primary members will be limited to Senators or their official representatives.

Key points of a draft resolution being considered by the Executive Committee will be presented for discussion, but will not be voted on in October. The Executive Committee anticipates that the resolution will be presented for approval in November.
