Standing Committees of the Faculty Council
The Faculty Council has four standing committees. All committees report back to the Faculty Council. A brief summary of each committee's structure, function and charge is presented below.
- The Executive Committee is comprised of the President, the President-Elect, the Past-President and the Chairs of the standing committees of the Faculty Council. The Executive Committee oversees Council agendas, prepares meeting minutes, appoints members to standing committees, receives and considers issues of concern, makes recommendations to the Dean and transacts general Council business.
- The Faculty Resources Committee consists of nine faculty broadly representative of the academic departments and institutes; they are appointed by the Executive Committee of the Faculty Council and serve three-year, renewable terms. The Faculty Resources Committee reviews and make recommendations to the Faculty Council on both infrastructure and quality of life resources.
- The Committee on Professionalism consists of 21 faculty who are broadly representative of the academic departments and are appointed for three year, renewable terms. The Committee on Professionalism develops and supports an infrastructure that promotes professional behavior, and provides a forum for considering allegations of unprofessional behavior made by any faculty member, staff member or trainee about a faculty member.
- The Faculty Disciplinary Tribunal consists of seven members and three alternates appointed by the Executive Committee of the Faculty Council to serve two-year or three-year terms. The Tribunal conducts hearings upon the request of faculty who have received disciplinary action, and makes recommendations to the Dean as to whether the disciplinary action is appropriate.
