Elected Faculty Councils

The governing body of a campus, college or school is its elected faculty council. According to Section 23-45 of the Faculty Code, these elected bodies shall advise their respective Deans or Chancellors on matters of faculty promotion and tenure, matters involving academic policy, including priorities, resource and salary allocation, and budgets.

The faculty also determine the organization and structure of its council and the procedure by which the members are elected by establishing bylaws. These bylaws are documents that describe the way in which the Deans and Chancellors and the faculties are to practice shared governance and vary in ways that reflect the particular culture of an academic unit.
