Rules Committee

The Rules Committee is the guardian of the faculty rules. The rules are a part of the Ohio Administrative Code, and proposals to change the rules must be vetted by the rules committee, in collaboration with other committees, including faculty council. The specific rule language must be finalized by the committee before any rule change is proposed to the University Senate for approval.
