The Faculty Committee on Appeals

Membership. Five faculty members (one tenured representative elected by each of the four curriculum divisions, plus one tenured at-large member, 3-year terms). An alternate will be appointed by the Faculty Governance Committee in consultation with the chair of the appeals committee when a principal member is unavailable or must abstain for personal reasons or potential conflict of interest. The committee may hear Honor Council appeals with a quorum of 4 people at the discretion of the committee chair. Service on this committee precludes the holding of a seat on the Faculty Professional Interest Committee.

Duties.

  • Hear appeals of faculty fourth-year review, tenure and promotion decisions and report their actions and conclusions to the President;
  • Hear appeals of dismissal for cause cases and report their actions and conclusions to the President;
  • Hear appeals of student Honor Council decisions and report their actions and conclusions to the parties designated in Article IV. Section 5 of the Honor Council Constitution (and to the Faculty, while preserving confidentiality).

Expected Involvement. Meetings are held at the call of the Chair.
