Constitution and Bylaws & Faculty Handbook
The purpose of the Faculty Senate constitution is to create a Senate whose objective is to represent the faculty members of Butler University in all areas where they have authority or interest. For the purposes of this constitution and the attending bylaws, the term faculty member refers to all full-time teaching faculty of the University, both tenure and non-tenure tracks.
The Faculty Handbook is a compilation of the policies and procedures of the University as they affect faculty members. The faculty policies also discuss the rights and responsibilities of the faculty. These policies and procedures are reviewed periodically and subject to revision by actions of the University, its Board of Trustees and the Faculty Senate.
