The University of Arizona practices shared governance with its faculty, appointed personnel, staff, students, and our ultimate governing body, the Arizona Board of Regents. Faculty members not only share in the traditional role of recommending academic curricula and academic personnel policies, but also in the strategic and financial planning process, and in developing policies and procedures relative to the general operations of the University.
Participation in the faculty governance process, on committees, in the Faculty Senate, on SPBAC, etc. helps to improve this University and to protect faculty rights.
