Faculty Rights and Responsibilities

An important component of the Senate’s commitment to shared governance involves attention to Faculty rights and responsibilities.  This committee is both pro-active in its initiatives as well as responsive to the specific concerns voiced by its constituency.  Maintaining an awareness of peer institutions and national trends, the committee serves as a conduit for Faculty voices. Recent examples include internet privacy, and the ombudsperson program.  If indeed a thriving, productive Faculty is at the heart of every great university, it is hoped that this committee, as a component of our elected body of representatives, will contribute to the overarching well-being of our community.
