Faculty Welfare Committee

The Faculty Welfare Committee consists of one faculty member elected from each academic unit. The Committee is a means for faculty members to express their thoughts relating to matters of faculty welfare. The Committee communicates faculty concerns to the appropriate administrative officers or to the Faculty Senate.

In general, areas of Committee concern apply to the faculty as a whole rather than to individual faculty members. Committee concerns include but are not restricted to salaries, benefits, and rank; policies regarding teaching load and assignments; policies regarding University programs and activities affecting faculty welfare; policies regarding conduct and professional ethics; professional relations among faculty, and between faculty and the administration; faculty involvement in campus decision-making and governance; general faculty morale; and equal opportunity and affirmative action.

Before the end of the fall semester, the Committee distributes to the faculty a summary of administrative review rankings of faculty for the previous year by each academic unit; a summary of all faculty salaries by salary interval, including a breakdown of salaries by gender and race, as permitted by law; and numerical results of faculty evaluations of administrators and each academic or administrative support offices and departments.

Complaints about matters relating to possible violations of the Promotion and Tenure Code of Ethics should be reported to the chair of the Faculty Welfare Committee who is responsible for reporting the matter to the Chair or Char-elect of the Promotion and Tenure Committee.

Faculty members filing a grievance do so with the Chair of the Faculty Welfare Committee according to the guidelines for Faculty Grievance Procedures (see page 101).
