Faculty Governance

Faculty walking in at Matriculation 2019.

The core documents of faculty governance are our faculty manual, which identifies the policies and procedures for faculty and our Faculty Statutes, which identify the powers of the faculty and the organization of their governance, including faculty senate and committees

Meetings of the faculty-as-a-whole normally take place on the first Tuesday of every month during the academic year.

Faculty are also organized by departments with Chairs, duly elected by their members. The Department Chairs Manual lays out the responsibilities and tasks typically carried out by department chairs, including guidelines for carrying out faculty searches.
