Resolution: Resolution in Support of Faculty Senate Approach to the Audit

WHEREAS, the faculty of the University of New Mexico at our General Faculty Meeting of February 2009 requested an audit of university expenditures in recent fiscal years; and

WHEREAS, Faculty Senate President Doug Fields has worked to advance that audit in dialogue with the UNM President and Board of Regents;

THEREFORE, the UNM Faculty Senate hereby endorses the approach adopted by Faculty Senate President Doug Fields in moving ahead with said audit on the revised terms agreed upon at the September 19, 2009 meeting of the Audit Subcommittee of the UNM Board of Regents. We further authorize the Faculty Senate President to withdraw faculty support from that audit process if in his judgment it is not pursued in a reliable and transparent way.
