In addition to formulating advice and counsel on system issues, Assembly members frquently serve on working groups, policy committees, an personnel committees of General Administration, as well as nominating members of the general faculty to serve on system initiatives as required. 

The Chair of the Assembly, and when present the Chair Elect, attend all Board of Governors public meetings, and serve ex-officio on the Board of Governors' Personnel and Tenure Committee, Education Policy and Planning Committee, and on General Administration's Chief Academic Officers (Provost's) Council. 

The Faculty Assembly meets at least five times, and typically six or more times, each academic year. Below is the meeting schedule for the 2017-2018 academic year. The location for all meetings is the C.D. Spangler Building, Chapel Hill, NC.
