SECTION 8.9. PROCEDURE FOR COLLEGE COMMITTEES ON FACULTY PERSONNEL AND BUDGET OR THEIR EQUIVALENT.
Each college committee on faculty personnel and budget or its equivalent shall keep minutes of its proceedings conforming insofar as is practicable to the most recent edition of Robert's Rules of Order. The actions of the committee shall be by secret ballot and the results of the balloting shall be duly recorded in its minutes. All records of the proceedings with respect to a candidate shall be filed in the candidate's administration file, available only to the committees and individuals responsible for the review and recommendation of appointments, reappointments, promotions, and tenure. It shall be the duty and responsibility of the president, or his/her designee, to communicate to the candidate the action of the committee but no reason shall be assigned for the action taken. The affirmative recommendation of the committee shall be submitted to the president. A negative recommendation of the committee shall be final unless an appeal filed by the employee is successful.
