OMAHA, Neb. (AP) _ Faculty leaders at the University of Nebraska at Omaha want to be consulted more frequently and thoroughly by administrators on some key decisions.

The university's Faculty Senate passed a resolution Wednesday asking administrators to ``advise and consult'' with the senate on budgetary matters, planning and certain hires, among others.

The resolution cites several recent developments, including budget cuts, a decision to make the Medical Center's chancellor the Omaha campus' interim chancellor, and the directive to share some vice chancellors between those two institutions.

A spokesman for University of Nebraska System President Hank Bounds says the president hasn't reviewed the resolution but is ``committed to shared governance and values the input of the faculty.''
