Commission on Women and Gender Equity in Academia

Faculty & Student Governance

This working group is currently looking for feedback on the following:

  • Where do you look for information about rules and regulations for your own experiences?
  • Are there “unwritten rules” that restrict your career advancement?
  • What are sources of confusion or frustration?
  • What are relevant disciplinary actions for faculty in your academic unit?
  • What specific roles do you think faculty should have in governance?

Share your feedback using the Share Your Input form.

This working group will review the gender equity in faculty and student governance, including (1) diversity of leadership at multiple levels, (2) procedures for appointments, review and reappointments of leaders across the academic environment, (3) procedures for changes in governance structures and involvement or representation of faculty, students and trainees in these procedures.

The Commission welcomes your input on experiences with these policies at the University and other institutions.
