Faculty Council

The Council makes recommendations and advises the President and/or his/her designee concerning matters of general educational policy and matters of general faculty interest. The Council acts on behalf of the faculty in cases requiring consideration of general matters when the faculty cannot be convened and considerations of individuals' grievances and concerns. The Council considers matters suggested by members of the administration. The Council develops and/or coordinates plans for college-wide faculty development in consultation with the academic deans and the Vice-President for Academic Affairs. Some Council members, appointed by the President of the College, serve on the local appeals board as specified by Tennessee Board of Regents Policies and procedures for hearing appeals on matters of promotion and tenure. In exercising these functions, the Faculty Council shall have the power to make for itself such rules and regulations as it may deem necessary for the fulfillment of its functions.
