            presented to the Faculty Senate Chair who will give these to the Faculty Senate Screening

If the President does not approve the candidate, the President notifies the candidate and the Senate Chair.  If approved by the President, the nomination is forwarded to the Board of Regents in accordance with Policy 803.17 of the University System of Georgia and with Georgia Perimeter College procedure.  After action by the Board of Regents, the President notifies the Senate Chair and the candidate of approval or non-approval.
