Faculty Appeals Committee

The Committee conducts appeals of tenure and promotion recommendations, cases involving termination for cause of tenured members of the faculty, and cases involving alleged violations of academic freedom. The processes for appeal of Tenure or Promotion recommendations or appeals of Professional Competence and Dismissal for Cause are described in separate sections in the Faculty Manual. The Committee is composed of five tenured representatives of the College Faculty Assembly, elected to three-year terms. No member of the Faculty Status Council may serve simultaneously on the Faculty Appeals Committee.
