Campus Senate Elections for AY 2016/2017
Faculty Advisory Council Call for Nominations
The University of Illinois Statutes and the UIS Campus Senate Bylaws call for a Faculty Advisory Council (FAC) to be formed at each campus and to be elected by and from the ranks of tenured and tenure-track faculty. An FAC will provide an additional layer of governance as an added recourse for the consideration of grievances and coordinate its activities and actions with the Campus Senate, Access and Equal Opportunity Office, and the Campus Ombudsman.
Any eligible person (see below) may be nominated by a petition signed by three members of the electorate (see below), signed by the nominee, and filed with Campus Senate Office Administrative Clerk, Brian Moore, by Wednesday, Nov. 23, at 4 p.m.
Terms of membership to the FAC are:
– Eligibility – includes all tenured and tenure-track faculty not holding an administrative appointment.
– Electorate – includes all tenured and tenure-track faculty not holding an administrative appointment.
– No more than two members of the committee may hold paid appointments in the same college or in the same unit organized independently of a college.
– The committee shall consist of seven faculty members. Membership of the first FAC will be staggered with two members serving for 2017-2018; and two for 2017-2019.
Charge of the Faculty Advisory Council:
The committee provides for the orderly voicing of suggestions for the good of the University and affords added recourse for the consideration of grievances. It also furnishes a channel for direct and concerted communication between the faculty and the administrative officers of the University, its colleges, schools, institutes, divisions, and other administrative units on matters of interest or concern to the academic staff or any member of it. The chair of the Faculty Advisory Committee participates with the provost and the chair of the Campus Senate in the appointment of faculty members to serve on Faculty Grievance Hearing Panels (Academic Staff Handbook).
The FAC coordinates its activities and actions with the Campus Senate, Access and Equal Opportunity Office, and the Campus Ombudsman.
