Indiana University Bloomington

Bylaws of the Bloomington Faculty Council

  1. The current revision of Robert's Rules of Order shall govern the conduct of the meetings of the Council except insofar as the bylaws make express provision to the contrary.

  2. The Executive Committee shall publish a schedule of Council meetings for the academic year before the beginning of the fall semester but may schedule additional meetings or cancel meetings as the need arises. The meetings of the Council shall begin at 3:30 P.M. and adjourn at 5:30 P.M. unless a later adjournment is agreed to unanimously. The Council by concurrence of a simple majority vote may fix a different time for a regular meeting or call a special meeting.

  3. The presence of a majority of the members shall constitute a quorum.

  4. Elections

    1. The Nomination Committee and its Election Supervisor shall conduct the elections for both the Bloomington Faculty Council, the Faculty President-elect and the Bloomington representatives to the University Faculty Council. These elections must begin early enough in the Fall Semester to permit completion of the election process in order to satisfy the deadlines imposed.

    2. Eligibility to Vote. Eligible participants and election units are governed by sections 5.5.A through C of the Constitution of the Bloomington Faculty. The election sub-units into which the College of Arts and Sciences is divided pursuant to section 5.5.A of the Constitution of the Bloomington Faculty shall be specified in an appendix to these bylaws.

      1. Preparation of Voting Lists. The Provost shall supply a list of eligible Bloomington faculty and librarians; this list shall specify the departmental or program affiliations and tenured or non-tenured status of each person. From this list each school dean and the Dean of Libraries shall supply to the Nomination Committee and its Election Supervisor a list of those eligible under his or her jurisdiction. The Nomination Committee and its Election Supervisor shall check the lists and adjust them to provide that no person is assigned to more than one unit.

      2. Individual Choice of Voting Unit. Anyone may request the Nomination Committee and its Election Supervisor to change an assignment to a unit. If the Nomination Committee and its Election Supervisor do not agree to the change, this decision may be appealed to the Constitution and Rules Committee, whose decision will be final. The Constitution and Rules Committee shall report to the Council any such actions taken.

      3. Designation of Unit Election Officials. The Council shall designate one or more election officials in each voting unit to facilitate and to encourage participation from that unit.

      4. Basis of Representation. Each of the units shall be entitled to one Council representative for each fifty members (or major fraction thereof); each unit shall have a minimum of one representative.

      5. Nominations. In November of each year, the Nomination Committee and its Election Supervisor shall solicit nominations for representatives to the Bloomington Faculty Council. The list of all persons eligible to vote (organized by electoral unit and indicating which are tenured and which are non-tenured) shall be distributed to all faculty and librarians. This list shall accompany the nomination ballot. The nomination ballot shall list the present membership of the Bloomington Faculty Council--indicating which persons will serve an additional year, which are finishing a term but are eligible for re-election, and which are ineligible for re-election under Section 5.5.E of the Constitution of the Bloomington Faculty. The nomination ballot shall be returned to the Nomination Committee and its Election Supervisor by the end of the first semester. Each voter shall be notified as to his or her representation unit and the number of seats to be filled from that unit. He or she shall be invited to make twice this number of nominations from that unit. The ballot shall provide for separate nomination of general at-large representatives and of representatives limited to untenured faculty. Each voter may make three nominations for general at-large representatives and two for at-large representatives limited to untenured faculty.

      6. In November of each year, the Nomination Committee and its Election Supervisor shall also solicit nominations for the Faculty President-elect. Candidates for President-elect shall be selected from the current, elected members of the Bloomington Faculty Council through a process of nomination by fellow Council members. Each candidate must receive a minimum of three nominations to be considered for election. From among those nominated, the Nomination Committee will select at least two, but no more than six, candidates for President-elect, working to ensure diversity in the slate.

      7. Preparing the Election Ballot. For the Bloomington Faculty Council, those persons receiving the most nominating votes in each unit (up to twice the number of seats to be filled) shall be placed on the final ballot. Ties shall be decided by lot. Six additional at-large nominations shall be made by the Bloomington Faculty Council's Nomination Committee. Before any name is placed on the final ballot, the Nomination Committee and its Election Supervisor must determine that the nominee is willing to serve if elected. If a person has been nominated for the Bloomington Faculty Council from a unit and at large, the Nomination Committee and its Election Supervisor shall direct the nominee to choose in which one (and only one) of the categories he or she wishes to stand for election. The final ballot shall list the nominees from each unit. The at-large nominees plus the six nominees from the Nomination Committee will be combined and listed alphabetically in the separate categories for general at-large representatives and for at-large representatives limited to untenured faculty.

        For the President-elect, the ballot shall list the names of candidates selected by the Nomination Committee. Abbreviated resumes of relevant experience for each candidate shall accompany the ballot. The ballot shall permit write-in candidates provided those candidates are current, elected members of the Council.


      8. Conduct of the Election. The election of the Bloomington Faculty Council and of the President-elect for the following academic year shall be completed by the end of January. Each voter shall be entitled to vote in this election for representatives in their unit, representatives elected at large and President-elect. Ties will be decided by lot. The Nomination Committee and its Election Supervisor shall file with the Bloomington Faculty President a record of the votes cast and the final ballot.

    3. After the Bloomington Faculty Council members of the ensuing year have been determined, the existing Nomination Committee shall circulate a ballot to these members containing at least ten nominees for a new Nomination Committee. The names on the ballot shall be arranged in pairs by academic units (schools), of which no fewer than four shall be represented. The person in each pair receiving the larger number of votes shall be elected. Ties shall be decided by lot. The new Nomination Committee must be elected by the end of the first week of March. The Nomination Committee shall be chaired by the Past President who shall be a voting member of the Committee.

    4. The newly-elected Nomination Committee shall circulate a ballot to the voting members of the Council--as it will be constituted for the ensuing term--to elect a Secretary and a Parliamentarian. Abbreviated resumes of relevant experience for each candidate shall accompany the ballot. There shall be two nominees for Secretary and two for Parliamentarian. The ballot shall permit write-in candidates. The persons receiving the most votes for Secretary and Parliamentarian shall serve in those offices and shall also be members of the Executive Committee. This election shall be completed by the first week of April.

    5. Bloomington representatives to the University Faculty Council shall include the President-elect and chairperson or a co-chairperson who is a BFC member of the Budgetary Affairs Committee, the Constitution and Rules Committee, the Distributed Education Committee, the Diversity and Affirmative Action Committee, the Educational Policies Committee, the Executive Committee, the Faculty Affairs Committee, the Benefits Committee, the Library Committee, the Long-Range Planning Committee, the Research Affairs Committee, the Student Affairs Committee, and the Technology Policy Committee. These BFC members shall be the principal Bloomington nominees for the chair or co-chair of their counterpart committees of the UFC. The remaining members of the Bloomington delegation to the University Faculty Council shall be elected by the voting members of the Bloomington Faculty Council from a ballot prepared by the Nomination Committee. In preparing that ballot, the Nomination Committee shall bear in mind the mandate of section 4.2 of the Constitution of the Indiana University Faculty: "To the extent feasible consistent with the principle of providing representation proportional to the number of faculty in units, each campus shall provide in its constitution or bylaws for representation on the University Faculty Council for schools on the campus." To comply with Bylaw 4 of the University Faculty Council, all members of the Bloomington delegation to the University Faculty Council must be chosen by March 30.

    6. Specific times for particular steps in the election process established by the above regulations, as well as number to be elected from units or length of terms of service, may need to be modified in emergencies. Such necessary revisions shall not invalidate the election procedures or results.

    7. If a vacancy occurs in any of the following--President, Secretary, Parliamentarian, Nomination Committee, or Executive Committee--the Nomination Committee and the Executive Committee (meeting jointly) shall elect a replacement from among the present faculty members of the Council.

    8. In all elections of officers, committees, and Council members, ties will be decided by lot.

  5. The Vice Provost for Faculty and Academic Affairs, the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education, the Dean of the University Graduate School and the Vice Provost for Research in Bloomington shall be voting members of the council.

  6. One representative of the Bloomington Reserve Officer Training Corps shall be a non-voting member of the Bloomington Faculty Council, representing the Departments of Military Science (Army) and Aerospace Studies (Air Force), to be designated jointly by the members of those departments.

  7. Alternates, Temporary Replacement Members, Vacancies:

    1. Members of the Council may appoint alternates to serve in their places at any meeting.

    2. If an elected member will be absent for one or two semesters, the member shall notify the Executive Committee prior to the first meeting of the semester. The Executive Committee will initiate a process for temporary replacement that will include consultation of the member's school policy committee or, in the case of at-large members, the Nomination Committee. If an elected member will be absent for more than a year, the member shall notify the Executive Committee, and the Executive Committee will declare the seat vacant. If someone is elected President, their seat also becomes vacant and should be filled according to the procedures in section 7.C.

    3. Whenever a vacancy occurs among the elected members of the Council earlier than a month before the Council's final meeting of the academic year, that vacancy shall be filled by the unelected nominee in the same election unit (whether faculty and librarian election unit or the at-large unit) who received the highest number of votes in the most recent election. If that person is unable to serve, the elected faculty members of the unit's policy committee, or equivalent, shall elect a replacement from among members of the same election unit or, in the case of an at-large vacancy, the Nomination Committee and the Executive Committee, meeting jointly, shall elect a replacement from among eligible faculty.

    4. A member of Council who fails to attend a majority of Council meetings during a semester without an alternate will be contacted by the Executive Committee. After the discussion the Executive Committee, at its discretion, may take no action, initiate a temporary replacement process, or declare the seat vacant.

  8. Pursuant to section 5.6 of the Constitution of the Bloomington Faculty, one representative from each faculty and librarian election unit shall serve as a Council liaison to the unit's policy committee, or equivalent. The Council's nomination and election ballots shall designate the representative positions that will serve that role. For units with more than one representative, other than the College of Arts and Sciences, the Nomination Committee shall designate one position for service as Council liaison to the unit's policy committee, or equivalent. The Executive Committee shall inform Council liaisons of matters arising in the work of the Council and its committees of which school faculty governance should be aware. School policy committees, or equivalent, shall establish working relationships with their Council liaisons that will enable them to convey school faculty concerns and policy to the Executive Committee and the Council. In cases where no elected BFC member is also a member of the elected policy committee of a particular school or college, that school or college policy committee may send a representative to attend BFC meetings as an observer with speaking privileges.

  9. On request prior to a meeting, any faculty member shall be invited by the Executive Committee to participate without vote in Council meetings--subject, however, to the exercise by the Executive Committee of its responsibility for taking varied points of view into account and for the efficient management of the Council's time. On its own initiative the Executive Committee may invite any non-member to participate in the discussion of matters of particular interest. Faculty members, students, members of the University staff, and members of the press are welcome to attend meetings of the Council, subject only to the adequacy of available space. The Executive Committee may invite the general faculty to participate in special meetings of the Council to be governed by ad hoc rules adopted by the Executive Committee.
