In a series of email messages in April 2012, the chair of the Faculty Consultative Committee (FCC), Professor Chris Cramer, and Provost Karen Hanson agreed on the appointment of an ad hoc committee on college constitutions. The general charge was to assemble and review the college constitutions, determine their status, identify the important elements that should be included in every constitution, seek an approval process at the central level, and develop an advisory set of minimum procedures or guidelines on what colleges should do to adopt and amend constitutions (e.g., what consultation should take place, who should participate) that the provost could then provide to the colleges. The recommendations should not dictate to the colleges what should be in the constitutions but might suggest best practices for college consideration.
