Faculty Handbook Committee

Membership: 1 tenured faculty member from each college and Library and 1 at large member, Vice Provost/Associate VP for Academic Affairs (ex officio). Members will serve three-year terms and can serve two consecutive terms. When consecutive terms have been served, a three-year break must occur before serving again. When a new chair is appointed, the former chair will remain as ex officio for at least one year for continuity.  

Description: The committee has the responsibility for reviewing and revising the faculty handbook to ensure that it is maintained in an up-to-date fashion. The committee will be responsible for revising the handbook on an annual basis and submitting a proposed revised Faculty Handbook to the Office of Academic Affairs so that it is available to faculty for electronic distribution at the beginning of each academic year.
