Biographical or Historical Information
The members of the General Faculty include the President, Vice-President, Deans, Professors and other instructional staff, and those members of the Professional Staff to whom the President assigns an academic rank. The General Faculty meets in regular session in the fall of each academic year to receive the annual report of the President, and in special session called by the President either on his or her own initiative or on resolution of the Faculty Senate, or on written request of at least ten percent (prior to 1958 this requirement was fifteen members) of the members of the General Faculty.
The functions of the General Faculty are to formulate an opinion upon any subject of interest to the University and make recommendations to the appropriate body or officer for final consideration and to receive reports and announcements from officers of the University and from the Faculty Senate. Formerly (prior to 1958), the General Faculty also performed the functions of recommending to the Board of Control candidates for degrees and certificates upon recommendation of the faculties of the several major instructional units, and conferring such honors and awards of scholarship as may be provided for by faculty legislation.
As many committees as are necessary for the General Faculty to perform its functions are appointed by the President, which among other committees include the Committee on Memorials and Courtesies and the Committee on Faculty Professional Relations.
