Membership. Five faculty members (one tenured representative elected by each of the four curriculum divisions, plus one tenured at-large member, 3-year terms). An alternate will be appointed by the Faculty Governance Committee when a principal member must abstain for personal reasons or potential conflict of interest. Service on this committee precludes the holding of a seat on the Faculty Professional Interest Committee.

Duties.

  • Hear appeals of faculty tenure and promotion decisions and report their actions and conclusions to the President;
  • Hear appeals of dismissal for cause cases and report their actions and conclusions to the President;
  • Hear appeals of student Honor Council decisions and report their actions and conclusions to the parties designated in Article XII of the Honor Council Constitution (and to the Faculty, while preserving confidentiality).

Expected Involvement. Meetings are held at the call of the Chair.
