The UNC Faculty Assembly
The UNC Faculty Assembly was established in 1972 at the request of then UNC President William Friday. The Faculty Assembly is an advisory body on System-wide issues, serving the President, the UNC System Office, the Board of Governors, the NC General Assembly, and campus faculty and administrative bodies.
In addition to formulating advice and counsel on System issues, Faculty Assembly members frequently serve on working groups, policy committees, and personnel committees of the UNC System Office. The Faculty Assembly also nominates members of the general faculty to serve on System initiatives as required.
The Chair of the Faculty Assembly and, when in place, 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 the UNC System Office’s Chief Academic Officers (Provosts’) Council.
