What does it mean?
On February 13, 1967 the University Senate approved a motion that was originally presented by Senator Thomas Wyman on January 16, 1967. The motion was drafted in an effort to encourage new participation within the University Senate. Previous to the Wyman motion, the by-laws of the University stated “Elected members shall serve for a term of three years and are eligible for re-election.” The Wyman motion changed the by-laws so that after a Senator serves two consecutive three-year terms, they must rotate off the Senate for at least one year before becoming eligible to serve again. The Senate passed this motion and playfully determined that any Senator who has to rotate off at the end of their term will be referred to as “Wymanized” in honor of the gentleman who proposed the idea in the first place.
