CALS/CES Faculty Council

The Faculty Council has been tasked to formulate recommendations on how we can more efficiently manage and utilize resources to achieve greater effectiveness in carrying out our three-fold mission of teaching, research and extension. Dean Shane Burgess introduced the membership, charge, resources, and guiding principles for this committee - originally called the Faculty Consultative Group - at an "all hands" meeting for the college on January 9, 2012.

 

The Faculty Council is composed of all elected and voting-eligible Faculty Senators with CALS or Cooperative Extension appointments, representatives elected by faculty within each CALS academic unit (one per department and two per school), and two elected representatives of county-based Cooperative Extension faculty.
