Section 2. The administrative head of each college shall be a dean, who
may be at the same time a professor in one of the departments of the college.
The Dean shall be nominated by the President and elected by the Board of
Control.

actment of rules to govern the affairs peculiar to the college, especially those
affecting the character of its courses of study. Subject to the approval of the
University Senate and the Board of Control, it shall fix requirements of the
college for entrance and for graduation and the form of the degrees to be con-
ferred. It shall determine the arrangement and content of its curricula. It

THE CONSTITUTION


Article XIII

furnish group instruction, there shall be a General Assembly, consisting of all
members of the University staff, of the rank of instructor and above. This
assembly shall have no legislative or executive power.

Section 2. OFFICERS-The presiding officer shall be the President, or in
his absence the Vice-President. The Registrar shall be the Secretary.

Section 3. MEETINGS-Meetings shall be held at the call of the President.

Article XIV

THE ORGANIZATION OF DEPARTMENTS

Section 1. The department shall be the unit of university organization for
instruction, research, and extension in a defined field of learning, provided,
however, that a college shall be considered the unit of organization when it is
not divided into departments. Where a teaching unit as a part of a college unit
includes two or more subject matter fields the unit may be called a teaching
division.

Section 2. The affairs of a department shall be administered by the head
of the department. He shall have general responsibility for all of the activities
of the department. He shall be responsible as follows: for the assignment of
duties to the members of the department; for filling vacancies and recommending
promotions or reductions in rank of the staff of the department, subject to ap-
proval by the dean and the President and confirmation by the Board of Control;
for the proper use of the quarters assigned to the department; for the proper care
and upkeep of the equipment belonging to the department; for the exenditure of
funds for equipment, upkeep and incidentals of the department, by requisition
approved by the dean of the college and Business Manager of the University; for
making plans and recommendations for the growth and development of the de-
partment; and for making reports concerning the department as called for by the
dean or President. He shall have the right to require any member of the staff
of his department to share in the work of meeting these responsibilities, as well
as to carry on the work of instruction, research, or extension.
A teaching division shall be administered by a chairman of the division and
an executive committee consisting of representatives of the subject matter fields
which are in the division, such representatives to be appointed by the chairman of
the division.

Section 3. The members of a department shall be all persons who engage in
the work of that department under the line authority of the head of the depart-
ment and who are budgeted in that department or who are specifically appointed
to the department as provided in Article XII, section 2, clause (b).

Section 4. For purposes of organization and budget, each department shall







UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA


be assigned to one and only one college; but the duties of the department shall
not necessarily be limited to that college. On the contrary it shall be the duty
of a department to give instruction in its own field of learning to students from
any of the colleges which may require such instruction; and to contribute re-
search and extension services in its own field to other divisions of the University
than its own college, in accordance with the demand for such services and the
practicability of giving them.

Section 5. The dean of any college shall have the right to assign properly
qualified students to courses offered by departments outside of his college, unless
objection shall be made to him by the head of a department, in which case he
may refer the matter to the University Senate for adjustment. When any col-
lege shall desire new courses (or other services) to be given by a department
outside of that college, the dean of that college shall send a written request to
the head of the department concerned through the dean of the college to which
that department belongs. If the request is not granted, the matter may be
referred to the University Senate for adjustment.

Section 6. The formation of a new department of instruction or the transfer
of a department from one college to another shall require the approval of the
University Senate, the President and the Board of Control, upon recommendation
of the dean of the college concerned, or, in case of transfer, of the deans of
both colleges.

for a limited period, such as for attending meetings of a professional nature,
shall be granted by the President. Protracted absence, involving business not
for the University, must be submitted to the Board of Control for its approval.
In case of absence from duty of an instructor because of illness, the head
of the department shall, where possible, with the advice and consent of the

Board of Control whereby, at the option of the Research Council, they may be

at the rate of seven and one-half cents per mile may be received by the operator of the automobile.







UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA


required to patent their respective inventions and/or discoveries and assign the
same to the Board of Commissioners of State Institutions of the State of
Florida, in which event the University shall pay the cost of obtaining such
patents.
If there should be a disposal of a patent, or discovery or invention, or a part
of its value, on such terms as to yield a return in excess of the cost of such
patent, the Research. Council shall recommend to the President for submission
to the Board of Control the payment of a just compensation to the discoverer
or inventor from the net proceeds, which in no case shall be less than 25 per
cent. If the material involved in the patent comes from research done on
dissertations or connection with dissertation problems, the amount allotted to
the discoverers shall be divided as follows: 66 2/3 per cent to the faculty member
who has directed the research and 331/3 percent to the graduate student who
helped with the work. If the University fails to agree, within 120 days after
the discovery or invention is announced to the Research Council, to pay the cost
of obtaining a patent, all rights and titles to the patent shall remain in the name
of the inventor. In case the Board of Control fails to agree within 120 days
after the discovery or invention is announced to the Research Council, to pay
the cost of obtaining a patent on the invention, then all rights to the invention
shall be the property of the inventor, and the Board of Control shall not assess
any costs incurred by it against the inventor. All University profits derived
from patents shall go to a "Research Fund" which shall be used for further
promotion of research.

Section 2. Investigations financed partly by the University in material re-
quirements or personnel service, the remainder being contributed by an or-
ganization of industrial or other character, or by an individual not connected
with the University. Projects of this type shall be undertaken only in accordance
with the execution of a written agreement made prior to the actual initiation of
such project. Each contract shall stipulate patent and publication rights.

Section 3. Investigations financed wholly by an organization of industrial
or other character, or by an individual not employed by the University. In this
case the research shall be prosecuted under a contract stating the rights and
ownership of patents which may result from such research.

Section 4. Investigations performed by an employee of the University at
his own expense and on his own time. This type of investigation logically divides
into two parts, type A and type B.

Type A.-When a discovery or invention is made outside of the field in
which the discoverer or inventor is employed by the University the results of
such research are obviously the private property of the investigator.

Type B.-When the discovery or invention is made in the field in which
the investigator is employed by the University the investigator shall present to
the Research Council an outline of the project and the conditions under which it
was done. The Council shall then recommend a suitable policy for handling the
material with respect to patent rights.







THE CONSTITUTION


Article II

COPYRIGHTS

This subject is divided into two parts, type A and type B:

Type A.-The Teaching Faculty: It has long been the privilege of the teach-
ing faculty of the University to write articles, pamphlets, and books or to
present papers before learned Societies, to enter into contract for the publication
of their works, to procure copyrights for their products, and to receive royalties
resulting from their sales where the ideas came from the individual, where the
products were the result of independent labors, and where the University was
not responsible for the opinion expressed. The precedent is so clearly established
that it would be a violation of academic rights to propose a variation of this
policy. Articles, pamphlets, and books written by one doing part-time teaching
and part-time research, which have no connection with his research, are included
herein. Authorship, however, should not interfere with teaching or other duties,
and should be of an elevating and helpful nature.

Type B.-The Non-Teaching Faculty, including research workers, employees
on special status, etc.: It shall be the policy of the University for an employee
not falling under type A and who is engaged in regular line of duty in projects
assigned him by the University, to present as to writings in connection therewith
his claims approved by the administrative head of his college or division, for the
use of copyright privileges to the Research Council. The Council shall then make
a recommendation as to the use of the copyright privileges to the Board of Con-
trol and the decision of that Board shall be final.
These policies and regulations were unanimously recommended by the Uni-
versity Committee on Patents and Copyrights and the Research Council. They
were submitted by the Board of Control to the Attorney General and approved
by him on May 8, 1942, and finally adopted by the Board of Control on June 5,
1942. They were revised and approved by the Research Council, July 20, 1944, by
the Board of Commissioners of State Institutions on August 8, 1944, and by the
Board of Control on August 14, 1944.

PART III

THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA

Article I

STATEMENT OF PRINCIPLES
Section I. It is the general policy of the University of Florida to encourage
its faculty and staff members to engage in research; to offer professional advice
concerning the development of any natural resources of the State, or any new
product, or any scientific apparatus or process; to prepare and publish the results
of their research in articles and reports; to make addresses of interest to the
public; to write articles and books; to do a reasonable amount of extension or







UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA


correspondence teaching, subject to specific regulations thereon; to serve as
officers or to be members of important committees of scientific societies and organ-
izations; and to advance their institution in every legitimate way.

Section 2. Outside employment by members of the faculty and staff shall be
subject to the following principles:

(a) That such employment would not interfere with other qualitative or
quantitative contributions to the University on the part of the staff
member in question;

(b) That the outside work be specifically related to the professional re-
sponsibilities of the staff member;

(c) That it be clearly demonstrated that the proposed outside work would
make a definite practical contribution or add to the prestige of the
State of Florida;

(d) That careful attention be given as to whether or not the proposed
outside work is in the best general interest of the University;

(e) That in event the outside work involves the giving of expert testi-
mony in litigated cases that such testimony be given only when re-
quested by a governmental agency but at no time on behalf of
private interests.

Section 3. Ordinary private business of members of the faculty and staff,
such as the investment of money or the employment of labor in legitimate under-
takings, casting no odium on nor causing loss of time from University duties, is
not considered within the purview of official regulation.

Article II

METHOD OF PROCEDURE

Section 1. All members of the faculty and staff who desire to engage in work
outside their regular duties, shall, with the approval of the head of the depart-
ment, dean, or other administrative officer concerned, make application to the
President of the University, who shall have the power to authorize or disapprove
such application pending final action by the Board of Control. Applications should
indicate the nature of the work, its duration, the remuneration if any, and an
evaluation of its significance to the University and the State.

Section 2. This procedure shall be followed regardless of whether or not
such outside employment is for compensation, or the work is being undertaken by
faculty members or employees who are working part-time or during vacations,
unless connection with the University has been finally severed.

Section 3. Deans and Directors shall submit annual reports to the President
summarizing the outside work of staff members, giving brief descriptions of the
nature of the work, the total remuneration if any, and an evaluation of its
significance for the University and the State.







THE CONSTITUTION


PART IV

COMMITTEES AND BOARDS

The following general principles are enunciated relative to appointments of
committees and boards. They will apply to all committees and boards, except to
those specifically provided for differently by the Constitution of the University or
by action of the University Senate.
1. In order to insure continuity of thought and action, members shall be
appointed by the President for a term of four years, except that the first time a
committee is appointed under this policy, there will be as nearly as possible an
equal distribution of the members with terms of one, two, three, and four years.
2. Unless otherwise stated, the President shall annually designate the Chair-
man from the personnel of the committee.
3. In May of each year, the committee shall advise the President of the names
of those members whose terms expire and shall make at least two nominations for
each vacancy, together with such pertinent information regarding the committee's
organization and policies as will enable the President to fill the vacancies in the
most equitable manner. Whenever a vacancy occurs other than by expiration
of term, nominations for a successor shall be made by the committee immediately
to the President.
4. When in the study of matters before a committee, it is felt advisable to
bring in special assistance from personnel outside the committee, a sub-
committee including such personnel, may be named by the committee. This
subcommittee shall be temporary in tenure. Such a committee shall be re-
sponsible to, and make its report to the constitutional or Senate committee
nominating it and shall not be listed as a standing University committee.
5. Any matter presented to a committee for consideration before it has been
submitted to the University Senate shall be presented to the University Senate
in its original form in the next published Senate agenda, together with a state-
ment giving (1) the name of the committee to which it was referred, (2) the
date on which it was referred to the committee.
6. Adequate committees are set up herein to handle most of the problems
that will confront the University, and it shall be the Administration's policy to
avoid the appointment of special or emergency committees. Matters may come
up from time to time, which do not necessarily fall within the jurisdiction of
these committees. Under such circumstances, special or emergency committees
may be appointed.
