The Academic Assembly is the elected body through which the faculty participates in decisions involving academic, university-wide matters, as well as areas that influence student learning. Such matters include among other things: academic quality, terms of faculty service, curricula that require coordination across programs, strategic planning, budgets, and physical facilities.

Faculty participation

The Assembly needs and welcomes the help of the faculty in identifying issues that should be addressed by the Assembly. Faculty members should feel free to discuss issues with individual members. Assembly meetings are open to all faculty members. Any faculty member may address the Assembly upon the invitation of the president of the Assembly or upon approval by the president of a request made a week in advance of a meeting.
