Faculty Council requests input on revisions to bylaws

Faculty asked to provide feedback on proposed changes by April 11

Faculty Council in recent months has been working to update its bylaws, and is inviting faculty across the CU system to review proposed changes and offer input.

At the council’s March 6 meeting at 1800 Grant St., Vice Chair Laura Borgelt updated council members on the process, and noted contributions to the revisions already have been made by several council committees.

Borgelt said it has been over a decade since the bylaws have been extensively reviewed. Faculty Council has made an initial effort to suggest minor revisions to provide more accurate, or updated, reflections of faculty governance processes, faculty communication and faculty council committees.

“We are now requesting input from the general faculty for any additional comments or suggestions in this revision process,” Borgelt said.

Any feedback should be sent to Laura Borgelt (, vice chair of Faculty Council, by Friday, April 11.

The council’s bylaws are organized to correspond to Articles of the University of Colorado Faculty Senate Constitution (Constitution). Where there are bylaws for an article of the Constitution, their numbering corresponds to the similarly numbered article of the Constitution.
