The function of the Faculty Advisory Board for Administration is to conduct periodic reviews of senior administrators in the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Engineering. The administrators to be reviewed, schedule of reviews, and review procedures shall be determined by the Faculty of Arts, Sciences and Engineering in consultation with the Dean of Arts and Sciences, the Dean of Engineering and the Provost. The board may itself initiate inquiry for urgent situations if it deems necessary and shall report its findings to the faculty. In general, the board shall not consider matters falling within the jurisdiction of other faculty standing committees, departments, programs, or similar established bodies. However, the board may initiate actions relating to such matters when questions concerning administrative procedures and/or quality of performance present themselves. The board shall have the authority of the faculty to solicit from faculty, administration, and others whatever information it deems appropriate for these inquiries. The board shall respect the rights of privacy of individuals and the confidentiality of information entrusted to it to the maximum extent provided by law.

Workload varies from year to year depending on the reviews required by the administration. The committee does most of its work by email, and meets once or twice per semester to consult on final versions of reviews. This committee consists of five tenured members of the faculty of arts, sciences and engineering with at most one member from any one department or program, and including at least one member each from the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Engineering. The board shall elect its own convener annually. Members are appointed to a five-year term.
