Provost Response: Defining Faculty Governance

Emory Provost Claire Sterk joined the October Faculty Council meeting after the faculty-only session to further discuss and respond to the results of the faculty governance survey. “If we can reach a shared understanding of what we mean by faculty governance, I believe we would be in a much better place to have constructive conversations moving forward,” she said. “By ‘shared’ I don’t mean that everyone must agree to every word but rather that we agree on the principles at the university level and within each academic unit. In five different conversations, I might hear five different meanings of the term. The issues raised are always important. But what we should consider is, are the issues tied to faculty governance or to something else?”
