The Faculty Executive Committee (FEC) is elected by the faculty and conducts the governance of the College. In particular, the FEC:

  • Provides general oversight of the academic programs in the College
  • Serves as an advisory body on matters concerning the welfare of students in the College.
  • Reviews and approves requirements for College majors, minors, honors programs, and other curricular requirements of the College.
  • Reviews and proposes changes to College regulations.
  • Consults with concerned faculty members and members of the administration and makes recommendations to the Deans based on established Senate policies about the College’s allocation of educational resources, academic priorities, and planning and budget issues.

Who we are

The Deans and Vice Provost of Undergraduate Education serve as ex officio members of the FEC. The Undergraduate Student Association (USA) and the Graduate Student Association (GSA) each appoint representatives to the FEC. Although these members do not formally vote, they participate fully in the discussions, providing valuable input into matters pending before the Committee.
