Necessary due to changes to School of Engineering, Science & Technology and The Carol Ammon College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences department changes.

Currently: 7 A&S seats and 2 E&T seats.
Two of the A&S seats belong to areas that have moved to the new SEST school.

Proposed adjustment 4 SEST seats and 6 CLASS seats

Result: change voting members from 17 to 18 (Quorum remains 9)
