Being a part of CEHHS and the university community gives you a variety of resources for you to utilize. CEHHS offers its employees communications and marketing support, technology support, and finance and human resources support. Faculty and staff also have the opportunity to engage in a number of college-wide councils and committees.
CEHHS Committees and Councils
The College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences Administrative Council is an organization dedicated to upholding and exercising the principles of academic freedom, shared governance, tenure, and the faculty’s primary responsibility for the college’s curriculum. The Council confers with, advises, and communicates with the Dean of the College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences on college-wide matters.
The College Senate serves as an advocate of and voice for the faculty in matters that affect the academy of the college, including faculty affairs, policies, and procedures. The College Senate helps to create, maintain, and protect an environment that allows faculty to accomplish their assigned responsibilities.
The College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences Undergraduate and Graduate Curricular Review Committees (UGCRC/GCRC) serve to review curricular changes within the college and forward approved proposals to the Undergraduate Council and/or Graduate Council, as appropriate. Committees consist of representatives from each department within an undergraduate and/or graduate program, an ex-officio member, and a chairperson that the committee elects to serve for one year.
The Dean’s Staff Advisory Board consists of staff representatives from each department of the College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences. The board meets monthly during the academic year to develop and organize events for outreach into the community at the staff level.
The purpose of the Faculty Mentoring Council is to provide overarching support, guidance, and opportunities to the College in general, and mentors/mentees specifically, to facilitate professional development within the university that includes a focus on, but is not limited to, the tenure and promotion process.
The Promotion and Tenure Committee is responsible for the college review of departmental recommendations relative to the area of promotion, retention, and tenure. All rules and procedures that are stated in the university Faculty Handbook
