Faculty Governance

Committees

College of Medicine faculty committees create programs, allocate resources, review faculty appointments and promotions, admit students, advise the administration, and formulate and implement policies.

Serving on a committee provides an excellent opportunity to engage in important work on behalf of the College and allows for interaction with peers, information sharing, and development of leadership abilities.

A call for nominations to open faculty committee positions is circulated to the faculty of the College of Medicine each spring. You may nominate yourself or a colleague. (Please confirm in advance that your nominee is willing and able to commit to full participation on the committee if elected.)

The faculty elects committee members after the General Faculty Meeting held each May. Committee appointments commence on July 1st.

The same will apply to faculty title series. Only tenured members of the Committee may vote on issues concerning tenure track Faculty. This Committee will review and advise the Dean regarding each proposed Faculty appointment, promotion, or award of tenure.

The Faculty Diversity Advisory Committee (FDAC) is a standing committee which: 1) identifies strategies, tactics and priorities for improving faculty diversity and inclusivity at the COM; 2) assists in determining how to integrate diversity and inclusion, broadly defined, into everything we do at the college; 3) provides a line of communication between faculty and administration; and 4) supports development and implementation of programs related to diversity, equity, and inclusion that enhance faculty life (related to career development, mentoring, leadership, community outreach, etc.). The committee interacts closely with similar committees for students, staff and other groups. The FDAC is co-chaired by two of the members of the FDAC. The College of Medicine Deans for Faculty Development and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion serve as ex-officio members. The FDAC is comprised of 10 faculty members who will serve four-year terms. The FDAC will meet monthly. The work of the FDAC will be supported by the College of Medicine Offices of Faculty Affairs and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. Members must be on the faculty at the UA College of Medicine at the rank of Assistant, Associate or Full Professor. Additional individuals from staff/student diversity committees or the community may be invited to serve as liaisons on the FDAC. Membership should include representation from multiple departments and centers, all ranks and all tracks. It is expected that the committee will be diverse as defined by the COM Diversity Statement, and will include both UA employed and affiliate faculty.

The Honors and Awards Committee is a Standing Committee of the COM reporting to the Deputy Dean for Education and the Dean of the College of Medicine. It has 6 faculty members representing the COM Departments voted on by the Faculty and 4 student members, one from each class. It is responsible for selecting a series of awards presented to medical students. It will also review external requests for nominees for faculty awards.

This council represents the faculty’s voice within the AAMC leadership structure. It typically involves a stand-alone two-day meeting in the spring and sessions in conjunction with the AAMC Annual Meeting in November. There are other issue-based task force and committee meetings, but most of the work is completed via webinars, conference calls, and email. Faculty from the senior leadership ranks (such as chair, division director, program director, center director) but without a dean’s office appointment are eligible to serve.
