2.04 Meetings of School Faculties
(1) Meetings of each Faculty are held at the call of the dean or as the Faculty deems necessary.
(2) Each Faculty shall make rules of procedure and provide for committees, consistent with principles of the rules governing the University Faculty. In the absence of such action, the rules governing the procedures of the University Faculty (Chapters 1 and 4) shall apply when appropriate.
(3) It is the duty of faculty members to attend meetings of the Faculty. All members of the academic staff (defined in UWS 1.01(1)) have a right to speak, but only members of the University Faculty, as defined in 1.01(1), may vote unless otherwise provided in 2.02(2).
(4) The dean is the executive officer of the school and is responsible directly to the Provost/Vice Chancellor. The dean has immediate supervision of the affairs of the school in all of its departments and is the presiding officer of each Faculty and ex-officio a member of all standing committees of the school.
(5) Each Faculty appoints a secretary who keeps a record of its proceedings. A copy of the proceedings of each Faculty is furnished by its secretary to each member of the school Faculty, to the Provost/Vice Chancellor, and to the Chancellor, for transmission to the President of the University System and the Board of Regents as may be required.
(6) The dean of each Faculty transmits to the University Faculty, through its secretary, all actions which are within the concern of the University Faculty, and school Faculty action which does not require consideration by the University Faculty is transmitted, in the same manner, to the Chancellor for transmission to the President of the University System and the Board of Regents as may be required.
(7) Except where expressly prescribed the activity of any representative faculty body of any school faculty must follow the procedures prescribed for the school Faculty.
