WHEREAS, the nine seats designated for representatives of the administrative and professional faculty on the Commission on Administrative and Professional Faculty Affairs were apportioned in accordance with the number of such faculty members grouped into four university divisions as of 1995; and

WHEREAS, the By Laws currently calls for five representatives elected from Extension/Public Service, two from academic support areas, one from Student Affairs, and one from general administration; and,

WHEREAS, the relative proportion of A/P faculty appointments in each group has changed somewhat in subsequent years, resulting in significantly higher ratios of faculty members to representatives on the Commission in some areas compared to others;
