Ad Hoc Committee on Faculty Governance

The Ad Hoc Committee on Faculty Governance was asked to survey systematically faculty opinion on the state of faculty governance at Notre Dame; outline and clarify current mechanisms of faculty governance; establish criteria to determine those issues that fall under the purview of faculty governance; ascertain whether there are any areas of disagreement between senior administrators and faculty members on the role of the faculty governance; and, based upon all its findings, offer recommendations for enhancing faculty governance. The focus of the committee was on faculty governance at the central university level rather than at the college or department level.
