Background

In Fall 2021, Dean Garzione appointed an ad-hoc committee to develop recommendations for the establishment of a new Faculty Council in the College of Science. Based on the committee's recommendations, the membership of the Council and terms of the members are detailed below.

Membership

  • The Council consists of up to 21 faculty members distributed as detailed below.
  • Fourteen departmental representatives, one from each of the 14 academic units of the college. These representatives may be faculty of any rank on any track (tenure track, continuing status, or career track). The representative should not be the department head.
  • Up to five career track representatives, one from each of the College's major fields of study (Life Sciences, Earth Sciences; Physics and Space Sciences; Mathematics and Computational Sciences; and Neural, Cognitive, and Behavioral Sciences).
  • Up to two continuing status or continuing status eligible faculty members, one from Steward Observatory and one from one of the other units with continuing status faculty (currently Mathematics, Molecular and Cellular Biology, and Neuroscience/Cognitive Science).

Terms

  • Once the Faculty Council reaches a steady state after a few years, each representative will serve a two-year term, with approximately half of the committee rotating off each year.
  • In the first year of the Council, however, all seats will be filled by election, and the College administration will randomly select approximately one half of the members to serve three-year terms. The other members will serve two-year terms.
  • Representatives are limited to two continuous terms and may be re-elected after at least one year off.
