The Assembly serves the President, UNC System Office, 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 the UNC System Office, 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 the UNC System Office's Chief Academic Officers (Provost's) Council.
