CHAPTER ONE: 1566
HISTORY, MISSION, GENERAL ORGANIZATION, AND GOVERNANCE
APPOINTMENT TO FACULTY STATUS
PREAMBLE: This section discusses certain members of the Faculty-at-Large who were made members of that body by presidential appointment before May 13, 1986. This version of the section dates to June, 1986, replacing the 1979 version in toto. For further information, contact the Office of the Faculty Secretary (208-885-6151).
The constitution of the university faculty originally provided that faculty status could be conferred by presidential designation on certain administrative and service officers who did not hold academic rank. When the faculty, on May 13, 1986, amended the constitution by, among other things, deleting that provision, it explicitly granted continuing membership, for the duration of their then current incumbencies, to those officers who on that date were members by virtue of presidential designation. These officers are members of the constituency known as the faculty-at-large. [See also 1520 Article V, Section 2, A-2, 3520 C-3 [ed. 7-97]
