Faculty Committee

2016-2017

As a faculty elective body, the Faculty Council represents the faculty and advises the Chancellor and other relevant administrators. Faculty members participate in the affairs of the university through the Faculty Council. Except in emergencies, all major decisions and plans of the administration that significantly affect academic affairs are submitted to the Faculty Council for an expression of its views at some time before implementation or submission to the Board of Trustees. The council's views are transmitted, along with the administration's proposals, to the trustees when the board considers the plans and decisions.
