As noted in Section 502D of the Code of the Board of Governors: “The chancellor shall be responsible for ensuring that there exists in the institution a faculty council or senate, a majority of whose members are elected by and from the members of the faculty… In addition to ensuring the establishment of a council or senate, the chancellor shall ensure the establishment of appropriate procedures within the institution to provide members of the faculty the means to give advice with respect to questions of academic policy and institutional governance, with particular emphasis upon matters of curriculum, degree requirements, instructional standards, and grading criteria. The procedures for giving advice may be through the council or senate, standing or special committees or other consultative means (emphasis added)."
To ensure the consultation and clear communication with the faculty that is necessary for effective operation of the Office of Academic Affairs, the Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs has established standing committees and on occasion special committees and task forces which include administrative and faculty representation. The work of these groups is addressed in this section.
