Academic Entities

Academic units other than colleges and departments - Academic Entities

Most academic units at the University are Colleges and Departments. These are covered explicitly in the Constitution and Bylaws of the Faculty Senate. However, sometimes there are academic units that are not Colleges or Departments, such as Schools and Centers. These academic units must also have representation and abide by the curricular process stipulated in the Constitution and Bylaws of the Faculty. In order to expedite the process of understanding how an academic entity is considered with respect to the Constitution and Bylaws, the following table should be used.

To find out how an entity (usually a School) other than a Department or College is represented on Faculty Senate Committees , use the following table. Except where noted Schools are either treated or act as Departments within Specific Colleges, at large Departments , or, as Colleges. The number of representatives for a Department is at most one and sometimes zero, depending on the committee membership rules. For colleges it is at least one representative.
