On May 6, 1997 a ballot and explanatory material (see also Almanac April 22, 1997) were mailed to all 2,052 members of the standing faculty and standing faculty-clinician educator on whether to adopt the amendments to the Proposed Procedure Governing Sanctions Taken Against Members of the Faculty. The votes cast by the May 22, 1997 deadline were 407 for and 19 against.
The amended procedure has been forwarded to the administration and the Trustees. If adopted by the Trustees, the new procedure will replace pp. 47-51, Section II.E.10., "Suspension or Termination for Just Cause" in the Handbook for Faculty and Academic Administrators. (Later this summer, the Handbook will be available online at the Provost's homepage on the Penn Web site.)
