Receive and consider suggestions, proposals, and grievances from individual faculty members. In cases of grievances submitted to the Work & Welfare Committee, the aggrieved persons may choose an adviser from the faculty to accompany them to the hearing. If the grievance has reference to promotion or tenure, it shall be the responsibility of the Work & Welfare Committee to review the procedures which have been followed in rendering the decision, to determine whether all of the procedures have been correct, and to report its findings or recommendations to the Promotion and Tenure Committee for that committee’s further review. It shall not be a part of the Work & Welfare Committee’s responsibility to deal with matters of substance relating to grievances affecting promotion and tenure.
