Faculty Governance

Faculty Governance Bylaws

The purpose of these Bylaws is to provide the basic organizational structure by which the Faculty of The University of Arizona College of Medicine-Tucson (COM-Tucson) will function within the scope of its authority and responsibility. These Bylaws provide procedures by which the Faculty of the COM-Tucson will function as a professional organization, exercising its authority and responsibilities subject to the constitution and statutes of the State of Arizona, and the policies and regulations of the Arizona Board of Regents and the University. Within the COM-Tucson, the purpose of these Bylaws is to ensure close and harmonious working relationships among the Faculty, the student body, and the Administration toward the accomplishment of common goals. These bylaws will become effective when approved by a vote of a majority of the Voting Faculty.
 

  • Faculty Bylaws COM-T
    These Bylaws provide procedures by which the faculty committees of the College of Medicine, Tucson will function. 

    Revised May 2023. 

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.

Permanent Committees

Admissions Committee (3 Year Term): The Faculty will elect its own members to the Admissions Committee. The Admissions Committee will consist of eleven (11) Faculty members and five (5) students. The Admissions Committee will be responsible to consider applicants and select students to the M.D. program for the college. The Admissions Committee’s decisions regarding such selections will be final and not subject to administrative or other review.

Faculty Diversity Advisory Committee (FDAC) (4 Year Term): 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.
