Important Faculty Manual Update!
A Faculty Manual Revision Task Force has begun the work of identifying potential amendments to the current Manual (2008). In addition to addressing more substantive matters, the Task Force seeks to bring the Manual language into conformity with the University's administrative structure emergent from the 2009 elimination of the provost position and subsequent reorganization of the SLU executive staff.

Given the particular importance of clarity in the faculty grievance process, the Task Force made the review of the affected Manual sections (Sec. III.I.4. - III.I.9.d. on pp.38-48) its top priority. Click HERE to view this Manual excerpt. The Task Force's recommendations appear as comments in the right-hand page margins. Please note that these recommendations do not address substantive changes to the grievance process; any such recommendations will be made at a later time. For now, the Task Force sought only to determine the appropriate substitution for the "Provost" references based upon the new administrative structure outlined in the current organizational chart linked from the bottom of this page, plus make one nominal revision emergent from the separation of Doisy College and the School of Nursing.

At its November 30, 2010, meeting, the Faculty Senate voted unanimously to accept and implement these recommended transitional changes so that the faculty grievance process will be clarified for those affected while the Manual amendment process continues. These changes do not constitute formal Manual amendments at this point but will be formalized as such at a later date. On December 16, 2010, the President's Coordinating Council (PCC) also voted to accept and implement these changes.

Hence, the changes described here and reflected in the linked document are understood to be in effect as of December 16, 2010.
