Call for Nominations for 2024-2025 University-Wide Faculty Governance Positions

Friday, February 2, 2024

Dear Colleagues,

The Faculty of UNC Charlotte are charged with the responsibility for making policy decisions regarding the curriculum, academic standards, and the allocation of internal research funds. We are also charged with important advisory responsibilities regarding our working schedule and conditions, the university budget, facilities planning, administrative appointments, and other elements of institutional policy and operation that touch us directly and indirectly. These responsibilities are conducted through a system of shared governance.

Please consider how you and others you respect and who might be willing could become part of the shared governance process at UNC Charlotte. Nominate yourself or another qualified faculty member for any of the following openings. This form of service to the institution is the most direct way to further your long-term interests, those of the faculty at large, and the viability of your discipline. A brief description of each committee listed below can be found at: 

PLEASE NOTE: This call to ‘Nominate and Elect Faculty’ is for positions that are University-wide. There are other faculty governance positions (members of Faculty Council standing committees, Faculty Council representatives, etc.) that are elected college-wide or department-wide and those units will handle their own election processes.
