Faculty Advisory Board (FAB) Appointed

Function:  To provide a pool of  faculty peers to staff an Advisory Panel (AP, see below), which is convened in the formal investigation of a discrimination or harassment charge made against a member of the faculty; or to staff a Grievance Panel (GP, see below), which is convened when a member of the Faculty appeals disciplinary sanctions, based upon charges of professional incompetence, neglect of duties, professional misconduct, or personal misconduct or when the ADOFP believes dismissal of a member of the Faculty is warranted, based upon charges of professional incompetence, neglect of duties, professional misconduct, or personal misconduct. 

Membership: Eight members of the faculty, at least six of whom must be tenured and two of whom may be untenured at the time of appointment, serving overlapping three-year terms.  These members will be appointed by the FEC in consultation with the Dean of Faculty/Vice President for Academic Affairs, and trained by Human Resources in matters of discrimination, harassment, and disciplinary proceedings.  Appointments will be based on an initial willingness-to-serve pool, the vote of the faculty, and, when necessary, the need for appointing a representative FAB.  Members of the FAB may not serve concurrently on the CAFR, the CAPT or the TRB.  The FAB will select its chair from its membership.
