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 COM-Tucson Faculty will elect its own members to the Student Progress Committee, which will consist of at least eight (8) Faculty members, and one (1) student from each of its classes. The Student Progress Committee will have jurisdiction to consider all cases of unsatisfactory academic or non-academic performance, including discipline; recommendations by the Honor Code Committee that the Committee take disciplinary action against a student following a finding that a student has violated the Honor Code; and other matters affecting a student’s progress in the College, as described more fully in the Procedures for Student Progress, Academic Integrity and Managing Grade Appeals (COM-Tucson), as amended, which will govern the Committee’s activities. Such committees will have broad discretion to address issues related to students’ academic progress and disciplinary matters, and to formulate plans for progression and discipline in a manner consistent with COM-Tucson policy. It will also serve as the appeals committee when a student seeks review of a decision by the Associate Dean for Student Affairs that s/he qualifies for automatic dismissal, a finding by the Honor Code Committee that s/he has violated the College’s Code of Scholastic Conduct (prior to the Student Progress Committee considering discipline based upon such finding), and for grade appeals. The Student Progress Committee will also certify that students have met the criteria for graduation and receipt of the M.D. degree. Current society mentors, block directors, clerkship directors, and any faculty member whose participation on this Committee would constitute a conflict of interest, are not eligible to serve on this Committee.

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. Most of the awards will be nominated directly by a Department or Center. When only one nominee can be submitted by the COM, the Honors & Awards committee will review the nominees (if more than one) and provide a recommendation to the Dean.

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.

The Graduate Council provides a forum in which matters of concern to graduate education are discussed and the mission of the Graduate College fulfilled. The Council works with the Graduate College to review, establish, and update policies affecting graduate education. Among its roles, the Council is a part of the University process for creating or changing graduate degree programs in the planning and implementation stages, leading to ultimate approval by the Arizona Board of Regents. The Council recommends and reviews the policies and procedures of the Graduate College, including but not limited to admission requirements, degree certification, graduate teaching and research assistantships and recommends priorities for graduate education and supports efforts to achieve them. All instruction, curriculum, and policy action items approved by the Graduate Council are forwarded to the College Academic Administrators Council, Team Provost, and the Senate Executive Committee before advancing to the Faculty Senate for approval. http://facultygovernance.arizona.edu/committee/42
