How Does Senate Legislation Formally Enter the Handbook? 1.A resolution is passed by Senate a)The content is determined to affect the Handbook and the relevant section of the Handbook is reworded and the revision is voted by the Senate. b)Not all resolutions affect the Handbook, but may result in changes in policies and procedures. c) If the resolution affects the Senate Bylaws, there is a full faculty ballot.
2. Resolutions receive the approval of the President (until 2008); or the Provost (after 2008) in consultation with the President. 3. The Board of Trustees approves resolutions, which may be Handbook resolutions or may be resolutions affecting policies and procedures not included or recommended for inclusion in the Handbook.
