  3. Exercising the authority and responsibility to investigate such matters as it deems advisable, or such matters that the COAH Faculty presents by petition of least 10% of its members, provided that petitioners follow University or Board policy where it specifically addresses the matters under investigation (i.e., discrimination, accommodation, etc.); 
  4. Nominating and preparing a slate of candidates for the positions of COAH Secretary, Parliamentarian, and all elected standing committees, and presenting them for Faculty vote; additional nominations may be made by petition of 10% of the Faculty;
