Docket Number:

Present such facts as are needed to establish the importance of the problem your petition addresses and to indicate its present status: 

Whereas, norms of shared governance, including the AAUP1966 statement on shared governance, indicate that the faculty should play a role in discussions of short-term and long-term planning and budgeting;

and, whereas, the faculty at the Unviersity of Northern Iowa currently has no formal mechanism for such routine, ongoing participation in UNI's planning and budgeting decisions;

and, whereas, such a mechanism could help to improve communication, information sharing and transparency in decision making on campus. 

Clearly indicate the action you wish the Senate to take relative to your petition, beginning with the phrase, "Therefore, be it resolved....": 

Therefore, be it resolved that the UNI Faculty Senate recommends that incoming President Ruud adopt a budget model that incorporates meaningful faculty participation, consistent with the attached document.
