Faculty Assembly

About

The Faculty Assembly at Sul Ross State University is the principal faculty governance organization for the Alpine campus. Its constitution designates a number of permanent councils whose primary role is to advise the University Administration on matters relating to the academic mission of the University.

The Faculty Assembly may also appoint special councils to carry out specified tasks. These councils report back to the Faculty Assembly and recommendations are forwarded to the administration through the appropriate council.

The Faculty Assembly Executive Council shall oversee the general interests and business of the Faculty Assembly.

Outstanding Teaching Award – Accepting Nominations

The announcement was made at the September 20, 2021 Faculty Assembly Membership Meeting that nominations for the Outstanding Teaching Award are now open.

One page nominations will be submitted to the Faculty Assembly President and the Faculty
Senate President in the fall semester. Alpine will solicit one-page nominations in
September and October. RGC will solicit one-page nominations in the fall semester.

The Alpine Faculty Assembly will disseminate the nomination forms to the
membership before the November meeting. The membership will determine
whether it wants to disseminate the nominations forms to the membership with
or without the nominator identified.

The Alpine Faculty Assembly Executive Council will confirm the eligibility of
the nominees before the November meeting and create a ballot. The Alpine
Faculty Assembly will vote for three nominees at the November meeting.

As RGC’s Faculty Senate only meets once each long semester, the Senate will
determine its nominee by email.

Completed nomination forms and packet materials are due to the Vice President for Academic
Affairs by the second Friday in February.

The Provost, in consultation with the Alpine Faculty Assembly and the RGC Faculty Senate, will
determine the Selection Committee members by the second Friday in February.

The Committee completes the selection process by the second Friday in March.

The Recipient is recognized by the end of the spring semester at the UC.

The Minnie Stevens Piper nominations are submitted by the November deadline.
