Work Flow of the Committee

Flow-chart for Committee Workflow

When an academic unit has approved a governance document change, it should deliver that document to the Provost’s office for logging. Progress can be tracked according to the following table. From Article IV of the UALR Constitution, “The governance document shall be submitted for review first to the dean, then simultaneously to the Vice Chancellor and Provost and to the Faculty Governance Committee, and finally to the Chancellor for approval. The review of governance documents must occur during the regular nine-month academic year. Each review shall be accomplished within 30 calendar days and comments from the reviewers shall accompany the document as it is forwarded throughout the review and approval process. Upon the agreement of the dean, provost, and two representatives of the faculty governance committee, the review time may be extended to ninety days.”

The Provost’s Office maintains a check-list for departmental governance documents.
