What Is a Resolution?
A resolution is a document introduced by a Staff Councilor usually requesting that action on a particular issue be taken. It may also express an opinion or position of an organized body. Usually, after the adoption of a resolution a member of the Council, the resolution sponsor, or any other member of the body may request that the resolution be directed to one or more University Officials for consideration and action. It is the responsibility of the Executive Committee to ensure that a resolution is sent and reviewed by the person or the office to which it is sent. It is also their responsibility to report back to the Council on any action or non-action taken.
