The UAF Faculty Senate approved the following at its meeting #10A 
on March 24, 1989:


MOTION PASSED (with 1 nay, 3 abstentions)
==============

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to extend terms of President and 
President-Elect for one year.


	EFFECTIVE: 	Immediately

	RATIONALE: 	The issues facing the newly constituted 
		Faculty Senate have been sufficiently complex and 
		continuing that it is felt that an extension of the current 
		leadership's terms by one year would be in the best 
		interest of the Faculty Senate.

		An Ad Hoc Committee is currently reviewing the 
		structure of the Senate leadership as noted in the 
		Constitution and Bylaws and has been asked to suggest 
		ways that the Senate can revise the section on their 
		leadership structure to ensure a strong and effective 
		faculty voice.
