At a special faculty meeting on December 9, 2013, the FAS ladder faculty discussed the report of the Committee on Faculty Input in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences and voted to make the following recommendations to President Peter Salovey:
- That the Faculty of Arts and Sciences establish an elected senate.
- That a committee appointed by the president be charged with crafting a detailed plan for the structure, staffing, and rules of the new senate, which will be presented to the FAS for a vote no later than December 2014.
The president accepted these recommendations and will appoint such a committee early next semester.
