The Rules and Procedures Council concerns itself with recommendations pertaining to structuring the Faculty Senate, specifically the reapportionment of Senate seats, seating and unseating Senators, and the election of Senate officers.  They examine the academic governance of the University including name changes and/or the restructuring of departments and schools, serve as a liaison with internal and external bodies, evaluate the Chancellor and the Provost and Vice Chancellor, recommend possible changes in the Board Statutes to the Board of Trustees, review current practices and policies in the area of academic governance, and formulate guidelines for the administration and governance of all academic units. 

The membership of the Rules and Procedures Council is determined by the Executive Committee of the Faculty Senate and is composed of six to twelve members of the Faculty Senate.  The Chair is appointed by the Faculty Senate Past-President, President, and President-Elect with the approval of the Faculty Senate.
