					RPC 0405-4 DRAFT 4/5/05
Current FM 1.I, paragraph 4 reads (italics for emphasis only):
  The policies and procedures in this Faculty Manual are designed to provide for respectful
  treatment of faculty, protection of academic freedom and the effective and efficient
  operation of the College as an institution. Dates and other time frames provided in this
  Faculty Manual are intended to be followed; however, they should not be considered firm
  deadlines. Deviation from them may be necessitated from time to time, and the College's
  failure to act prior to a stated deadline shall not bind the College in any way. Additionally,
  throughout this Manual there are various responsibilities and deadlines imposed upon
  faculty. The failure by any faculty member or faculty committee to act in accordance
  with the Manual's policies and procedures, or to act within a stated deadline, shall not bind
  the College in any way.

The proposal is to change this paragraph to read:
  The policies and procedures in this Faculty Manual are designed to provide for respectful
  treatment of faculty, protection of academic freedom and the effective and efficient
  operation of the College as an institution. Dates and other time frames related to
  Appointments (4.VI), Reappointments and renewals (4.VIII), Tenure (4.IX), Oral and
  Written Reasons in the Event of a Decision Not toReappoint, Renew, or Promote (4.XII),
  Dismissal Procedures (4.XVIII), Termination Procedures (4.XX), and Grievance Procedures
  (4.XXII) should be considered firm deadlines. These dates and time frames may be revised if
  both the College and a faculty member agree in writing in advance. Other dates and time
  frames provided in this Faculty Manual should not be considered firm deadlines; deviation
  from them may be necessitated from time to time, and the College's failure to act prior to a
  stated deadline shall not bind the College in any way. Additionally, throughout this Manual
  there are various responsibilities and deadlines imposed upon faculty. The failure by any
  faculty member or faculty committee to act in accordance with the Manual's policies and
  procedures, or to act within a stated deadline, shall not bind the College in any way.
