(Final; Action)

SP.09.07          Revision to the Bylaws, Part D.10 – Committee on Faculty and Academic Staff Benefits

BACKGROUND
The Committee on Faculty and Academic Staff Benefits has continued the review of its charge that has already led to the recommendations approved in SP.08.07 regarding its title, charge, and membership.  The members recommend one additional ex officio member be added to the committee:  the President of the UIUC Chapter of the State Universities Annuitants Association (SUAA) or that individual’s designee.  This would assure a liaison with that group which has occurred informally in the past and would reflect a procedure in effect at a number of other campuses in the Big Ten.

RECOMMENDATIONS
The Senate Committee on University Statutes and Senate Procedures and the Senate Committee on Faculty and Academic Staff Benefits recommend approval of the following revisions to the Bylaws.  Text to be deleted is indicated in [square brackets] and text to be added is underscored.
