Faculty Senate Committees

Curriculum Committee

Responsible for undergraduate and graduate curricular matters, including policy recommendations for degree requirements, the addition or deletion of degrees or majors, curricular issues affecting more than one college, and matters related to the university core curriculum (e.g., approval of new core courses, changes to core courses, and deleting core courses). This committee shall also be responsible for ensuring that each college has adopted written curricular decision making procedures, and that those procedures establish a curricular decision making process that maintains faculty control over that college’s curriculum and is independent of that college’s administration. Policies and procedures for curricular change are contained in the Guide to University Curriculum Committee Authority and Review, which is maintained by the committee and made public by the Faculty Senate.

 

Academic and Student Affairs Committee

Responsible for policy recommendations regarding teaching, student learning, support services for academic programs, academic quality, institutional mission, the creation or discontinuation of academic programs or units, and the admission, enrollment, and retention of students.

 

Faculty Affairs Committee

Responsible for policy recommendations regarding the status, rights, and responsibilities of faculty, including faculty hiring, rank and compensation, annual evaluations, promotion, tenure, leaves, and emeritus status. This committee is also responsible for policy recommendations regarding the selection of academic administrative personnel.

 

Professional Appeals Committee

Responsibility for deliberating on faculty grievances, and for making policy and procedural recommendations regarding the faculty grievance policy.
