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 share in recommending academic curricula and academic personnel policies, of course, but also in the strategic and financial planning process; and in developing policies and procedures relative to the general operations and development of the University.
The voice of the faculty is strong and respected, and your collective wisdom is needed as we face dramatic changes in teaching and research, communications technology, and financial support. Your 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.
