Consent Agenda

The Consent Agenda is a component of the Academic Senate Meeting Agenda. Items appearing on the Consent Agenda are expected to be routine and noncontroversial. Common uses include, but are not limited to, modifications to departments, courses, programs, degrees; new courses; and editorial revisions to personnel policies (New departments, programs and degrees must include a resolution and follow the regular approval path for resolutions.) The Consent Agenda will be distributed at least two weeks before the Academic Senate meeting for which it is agendized.

Any item on the Consent Agenda may be moved to the regular agenda at the request of a Senator at least one week before the Academic Senate meeting for which it is agendized. Any item on the Consent Agenda may be moved to the regular agenda at the request of a Senator within the allowed time. If an item is so moved, it shall be placed on the Business Items of the agenda as a First Reading item. Certain Consent Agenda items, such as recommendations from the Curriculum Committee or Faculty Affairs Committee, may require special procedures.

Debate is not allowed on any item on the Consent Agenda, but questions for clarification are permitted.

Items not removed shall be approved by general consent without debate.

TO PULL A CONSENT AGENDA ITEM: Contact Sarah Best, Administrative Analyst for the Academic Senate, at with the item you would like to appear as a business item.
