FACULTY GOVERNANCE

UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO SCHOOL OF DENTAL MEDICINE

PART I


STRUCTURE OF FACULTY GOVERNANCE

The faculty of the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine (CUSDM) is a self-governing body which operates according to the Constitution of the Faculty Senate of the School of Dental Medicine and the Laws of the Regents of the University of Colorado.

This organization exists within a framework of faculty governance at the University of Colorado Denver. The framework provides for interaction within the School, at the campus level and at the system-wide level.

The system-wide level has two bodies which reports to the President of the University. One body is the system-wide Faculty Senate which consists of all faculty who meet membership requirements as defined in the Constitution of the University of Colorado Denver Faculty Senate. The second body is the Faculty Council, which is a representative body with members from each campus and each school.

The University of Colorado Denver has a representative body on the Anschutz Medical Campus (AMC) called the Faculty Assembly of UCD. This group has a set of officers and representatives from each school on the AMC-UCD campus. Individual membership in the UCD Faculty Assembly can be defined independently from the university-wide definition, but officers and representatives to the university-wide system must meet membership requirements of the university-wide constitution.

The CUSDM faculty governing body is called the CUSDM Faculty Senate with membership defined in the Constitution of the Faculty Senate of the School of Dental Medicine. Officers of the CUSDM Faculty Senate and representatives to the UCD Faculty Assembly and University-wide Faculty Council also must meet membership requirement of those bodies. Officers and Representatives of the CUSDM Faculty Senate are elected by the members of the CUSDM Faculty Senate.

A schematic of faculty governance structure at the school, campus, and university-wide level is presented as an Attachment.
