The Faculty Role in Institutional Governance


Cumberland University’s Board of Trust is the ultimate authority for the governance of the University. The Board of Trust delegates, through the President, certain areas of authority to various constituents of the university. The Faculty is one such body. To the faculty is delegated the responsibility of assessing and managing courses and curriculum, and the development and continuous improvement of academic programs. This role is served through department, school, and committee engagement. The process for changes or additions to university courses, curriculum, and academic policy at the graduate and undergraduate level is described elsewhere.

 

The role of the Faculty Senate in university governance is defined in the by-laws of the Faculty Senate and includes representation on policy committees such as Dean's Council.
