Faculty Assembly


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.
