Council Chair Reflects on Year’s Work


Outgoing Faculty Council chair Deb Houry took several minutes of the final meeting of 2013-14 to review the Council’s work throughout the year. Among the highlights:

  • In early fall, the Council conducted a faculty governance survey based on the AAUP  “Indicators of Sound Governance” instrument.
  • The Faculty Handbook was thoroughly reviewed and revised with an approval vote from the Council in September.
  •  In January, following a review of the conflict of commitment policy outlined in the Emory Faculty Handbook, the Council voted to revise the policy.
  •  The Council also reviewed and approved an update to its own bylaws, as well as accepting a proposal from the School of Nursing to change their representation  to the Council to allow any member of the faculty (and not only a tenured faculty member) serve as a representative.
