Resolution Update

Resolution 2014-2015-2 Parental Leave Policy and Procedures for UCF Faculty Birth/Adoption was returned not-approved from the Provost March 4. The Provost commented, "While I am generally in favor of policies which support provisions for parental leave during the birth or adoption of children, this is a subject that falls under the legal purview of collective bargaining. Upon conferring with the UCF BOT Collective Bargaining Team, I was informed that there is currently a proposal covering parental leave that the BOT and UFF teams are currently negotiating. As such, I must refrain from approving this Resolution."

The UCF Faculty Senate shall be the basic legislative body of the University. Within the legal structure of the University of Central Florida and in cognizance of the reality that the University can only function properly when goodwill is nurtured and maintained by the president, administrators, and faculty, this constitution establishes the means for faculty participation in the governance of the University of Central Florida.
