COLUMBIA — Tuesday morning marks the start of the voting period to expand MU's definition of faculty, which would give nontenure-track faculty members voting rights on campus issues.
Tenured and tenure-track faculty members will be able to vote online until 11:59 p.m. April 2. Each faculty member will receive an email with a link to the website with the ballot. The vote will be administered through the Division of Information Technology.
On April 3, division staff members and the ballot oversight committee, formed by the MU Faculty Council, will view the results, and Faculty Council Chairman Harry Tyrer will announce them.
If the motion passes, the University of Missouri System Board of Curators will act on the proposed changes at a future meeting.
The exact ballot language, frequently asked questions, published news articles and a timeline for the voting process can be found on the Faculty Council website.
Supervising editor is Elizabeth Brixey.
