Faculty Assembly was one short of quorum (because some faculty had left), so no formal vote was taken but rather an informal request was made to Provost’s office regarding development of a digital policy handbook.
Dr. Heyboer requested that committees consider adding a student non-voting member, where appropriate and within constraints of privacy issues.
