Faculty governance


In recognition of the need of the Dean for a responsible group of faculty advisers who can meet frequently when necessary on short notice, there shall be a Faculty Advisory Council of the Faculty Assembly of the Medical School.  Members of the Faculty Advisory Council shall be those Medical School faculty who have been elected by their peers to the All-University Senate.

The Faculty Advisory Council shall, through the Dean, make recommendations to the Department Heads Council and/or the Executive Faculty, or its assembly as may be appropriate.


The responsibilities of the Faculty Assembly include all academic affairs and internal policies of the School including entrance requirements, curricula, instruction, examinations, grading, degrees, and disciplinary matters not within the jurisdiction of the All-University Disciplinary Committee.

The Faculty Assembly shall receive reports and recommendations from the various Councils and Committees established in the Constitution and the Bylaws.
