Below are descriptions of each committee.
The University Curriculum Committee (UCC) reviews and makes recommendations to the provost/vp for academic affairs for approval of curricular changes and innovations. The UCC is responsible for considering the impact curricular changes and innovations will have on the University.
The University Promotion Committee (UPC) reviews and evaluates the candidacies of all full-time faculty for promotion in rank through procedures and policies defined in the Faculty Handbook, and makes recommendations to the provost/vp for academic affairs. The committee also provides a forum for discussions of policy concerning faculty appointments.
The Faculty Council has primary responsibility for representing the views of the faculty to the president and the provost/vp for academic affairs and for advocating for faculty interests and welfare, including salaries, benefits, and sabbaticals; faculty development; and general personnel and intra-University communication, as they affect the faculty. The Faculty Council establishes its own organizational structure, selects its own leadership, and establishes its own meeting schedules and agendas, governed by its own by-laws. Each semester the council will hold at least one meeting that is open to all University faculty.
