Faculty Assembly

The UNC Faculty Assembly

The UNC Faculty Assembly was established in 1972 at the request of then UNC President William Friday. The Assembly serves the President, UNC General Administration, the Board of Governors, the NC General Assembly, and campus faculty and administrative bodies, as a faculty advisory body on system-wide issues. 

In addition to formulating advice and counsel on system issues, Assembly members frquently serve on working groups, policy committees, an personnel committees of General Administration, as well as nominating members of the general faculty to serve on system initiatives as required. 

The Chair of the Assembly, and when present the Chair Elect, attend all Board of Governors public meetings, and serve ex-officio on the Board of Governors' Personnel and Tenure Committee, Education Policy and Planning Committee, and on General Administration's Chief Academic Officers (Provost's) Council. 

The Assembly meets at least five times, and typically six or more times, each academic year. Below is the committees meeting schedule for the 2015-2016 academic year.
