Faculty Assembly

The Faculty Assembly is a representative body of the faculty within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The Faculty Assembly meets almost every month during the academic year to deliberate and act on major policy questions, often referred to the Assembly by the College Executive Committee or by the Undergraduate Educational Policy and Curriculum Committee.

The Assembly also functions as a forum on issues of importance to the faculty and to the College or University.

For a complete description of the powers, duties, and procedures of the Faculty Assembly, see Article IV of the CLAS Manual of Procedure.
