According to the Faculty Senate Bylaws, faculty who have split appointments between two apportionment units may choose with which unit they wish to be apportioned for Senate purposes. For example, if a faculty member has a split appointment between Agricultural Sciences and Science, they may choose one or the other (FTE will not be split among units). This choice will determine Senate representation. Faculty not choosing where they wish to be apportioned, will be placed in an apportionment unit at the discretion of the Faculty Senate Office. Please contact the Faculty Senate Office (email@example.com) prior to October 20 to indicate with which unit you wish to be apportioned. When responding, please provide your name, the units you are split between and the one with which you prefer to be apportioned.
