Definition of the Faculty

The terms "Faculty," "members of the Faculty," and "Faculty members" used in this handbook are defined as full-time faculty members of academic rank who hold NTT or TT appointments at the University and who, therefore, are members of the bargaining units as defined in the current Collective Bargaining Agreements (CBAs). Unless otherwise specified, participation in consensus decision making and voting rights on departmental matters are restricted to the Faculty with full-time appointments in the School.

In addition to the consensus decision making and voting Faculty, all other faculty members such as part-time, temporary, or adjunct appointments are eligible to attend School faculty meetings and participate in the deliberations; they do not have decision making or voting privileges.
