Representative and elected body of the faculty

Resolutions, Motions & Initiatives

Approved during the 2017-2018 academic year

A proposal to revise CTECs from the Educational Affairs Committee was unanimously approved by the Senate on April 18, 2018. 

The following motion in support of non-tenure eligible faculty from the Non-Tenure Eligible Committee was approved on April 18, 2018 by a majority vote in the Senate: 
"The Faculty Senate believes that Northwestern University should be an academic community in which all faculty are provided with institutional support for the teaching, research, and service that is expected of a great university. Therefore, the Senate recommends that the University response to concerns about inadequate support for the Non-Tenure Eligible faculty should not wait on resolution of National Labor Relations Board decisions regarding unionization. We reaffirm our strong commitment for measures that can be taken to improve salaries, benefits, and other conditions of professional work for NTE faculty, in order to achieve equity and reward excellence for all faculty at Northwestern." 

A motion to withdraw the Senate from the Coalition on Intercollegiate Athletics (COIA) was agreed to on February 14, 2018.
