Leadership (2020-2021)

Faculty Assembly Executive Committee (FAEC)

The 11-member Executive Committee, elected in accordance with the bylaws, consists of four officers and seven delegates: The Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, Parliamentarian, and delegates representing the HDMIs, two at-large, and one for each of four delegations (Delegations 2, 3, 4, and 5) which are based on the number of full time faculty at each institution. The FAEC charge is to review the structure and functions of the other committees; chair the committees and task forces; and prepare the agenda for Faculty Assembly meetings.
