Senate Agenda - EXHIBIT III - October 19, 2001

REPORT OF THE NOMINATING COMMITTEE

FOR ACTION

Background (Items 1-3):

Nominees are still needed for the Senate Committee on Promotion and Tenure I (SCPT-1), the Senate Committee on Promotion and Tenure II (SCPT-II) and the Senate Committee on Appeals. These Committees will continue to function for the following categories of faculty members until changes to their appointment documents have been approved:

a) Clinical Academics - Senate Stream (consideration for promotion and/or granting of Continuing Appointment) (Conditions of Appointment: Physicians Appointed in Clinical Departments and Clinical Divisions of Basic Science Departments (1999);

b) Robarts Research Institute Scientists (consideration for promotion only) (Appointment and Promotion Procedures: Faculty Employed by Robarts Research Institute Affiliated With The University of Western Ontario);

c) Basic Scientists in Clinical Departments in the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry who are Hospital full-time (HFT) employees with University full academic (UFA) appointments (consideration for promotion only) (Conditions of Appointment: Clinical Departments and Clinical Appointees in Basic Sciences Departments (1988).

Revisions to the 1999 Conditions of Appointment: Physicians Appointed in Clinical Departments and Clinical Divisions of Basic Science Departments are currently being considered by the Faculty Council of the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry and it is anticipated that the revisions will come before Senate and the Board this later this year. SCPT-I, SCPT-II and SCA have been deleted from the new procedures in the revised document. However, until such revisions are approved, faculty members in category (a) fall under the current document. A new appointment and promotion document is also being prepared for those faculty members falling within categories (b) and (c) above. The Senate Committees have been removed from the revised procedures in this document also. This document is still being considered by the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry. Until the new document has been approved by Senate and the Board, the current appointment documents continue to apply for these members.
