Faculty Governance in the School of Arts and Sciences

Faculty Meetings

Regular meetings of the School of Arts and Sciences are held during the academic year to conduct such business as the faculty and administrative officers deem necessary or desirable. The following full-time members of the faculty are voting members: professors, associate professors, assistant professors, instructors, lecturers, and professors of the practice. Faculty members with modified titles (e.g., "visiting," "adjunct," "emeritus" or "emerita," or "research") are ineligible to vote. Part-time faculty members are welcome to attend the meetings without vote. The president appoints those holding certain full-time administrative positions to be voting members of the faculty. Other administrators, by custom, are invited to attend faculty meetings ex officio, without vote. In the absence of the president, the provost, the dean of the School of Arts and Sciences, or his/her designee shall preside, in that order.

Faculty Committees

The following are standing committees of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences listed in the order in which they appear in the Bylaws of the Faculty of the College of Liberal Arts and Jackson College.
