The Arts & Sciences Faculty Council consists of 6 Standing Committees, including:
- Rules and Procedures
- College Policy and Planning
- Curriculum, General Education, and Extension
- Sabbatical Leave
- Reappointment, Promotion, and Tenure
The 6 Standing Committees are permanent and are the Faculty Council operating agents.
Except for the Tenure and Promotion Committee and the Sabbatical Leave Committee, the standing committees formulate and recommend actions, policies, and procedures for approval by the Faculty Council, which in turn makes recommendations to the Dean. As they make recommendations concerning personnel matters, the Tenure and Promotion Committee and the Sabbatical Leave Committee report directly to the Dean.
Ad Hoc Committees
Ad Hoc Committees may be appointed by the Chair of the Faculty Council whenever necessary. This action is submitted to the Faculty Council for approval at its next meeting. The term of an Ad Hoc Committee expires after the meeting at which its final report is accepted by the Faculty Council.
