Faculty Panels for Hearing Committees
In the event a faculty member is dismissed "for cause" a panel hearing may be requested.
The Board's Administrative Rules define criteria and procedures for the imposition of sanctions for
cause, including terminations of appointment (OAR 580-021-0320 through 580-021-0470). If such a sanction is to be
imposed, the faculty member may request a formal hearing of charges by a hearing committee to be
selected from a faculty panel which has been duly established.
Procedures for establishing faculty panels were adopted by the Faculty Senate on December 3, 1970
(motion 269-3), amended May 4, 1972; June 5, 1980; December 4, 1980; and June 1981. Nominees
for each new panel are randomly selected from the faculty.
