Collegial governance provides faculty with mechanisms and procedures, independent of the collective bargaining process, for the development and implementation of recommendations in areas of traditional faculty concern. Within the shared system of academic governance, the Faculty Association is concerned with academic programs, organization, and standards; academic services and continuing education; and such other matters as may pertain directly to university instruction, service, and research programs.
Decisions reached by the Faculty Association regarding its concerns are forwarded to the Provost, who acts on them where authority to do so has been delegated by the President or transmits them to the President of the University for action. The Provost is to process items so transmitted from the Faculty Association within 10 working days of receipt from the Association. When approved by the President of the University or appropriately delegated authority, the decisions become the policies, practices, and regulations of the University.
The membership of the Faculty Association consists of all persons holding regular or visiting faculty appointments; and all Library faculty members. The President of the University is a non-voting ex officio member of the Association. (Faculty Association Bylaws, Article III, Sections 1 and 2.)
