The Faculties

  1. The faculty of each school or college shall meet at such times as it may appoint, or at the call of the Chancellor or the appropriate dean. Each faculty may establish its own procedures for calling meetings. [1982]

  2. The faculties have the power of recommending individuals for degrees or other marks of academic distinction when the conditions prescribed in the several departments, colleges, and schools have been fulfilled. No individual shall be awarded a degree without the recommendation of the appropriate faculty. None of the regular degrees of the University shall be conferred as honorary degrees, nor shall any honorary degree be conferred by the University except upon recommendation of the Faculty Senate and with the concurrence of the Board of Trust and of the faculties. Each faculty may adopt policies, rules, and procedures found necessary or desirable in connection with its internal administration.[1981]
