Functions of the Faculty Rights and Responsibilities Policy Committee

The Faculty Rights and Responsibilities Policy Committee (FRRPC) shall review existing policies, practices and procedures concerning A&SSC faculty rights and responsibilities.

It shall formulate guidelines for areas of common concern to full time and part –time tenured and non-tenured faculty or groups of faculty so as to assure that the faculty are fully informed of matters that relate to their working relationship with each other, and departmental and university functions, including but not limited to departmental by–laws, cross-disciplinary appointments, options for promotions, and opportunities for continued university involvement by retired faculty.

The committee will focus on policies and guidelines but will not address individual personnel cases, nor will it deal with matters that are the due province of the designated faculty bargaining agent.

Membership on the FRRPC

The Committee on Faculty Rights and Responsibilities Policies shall consist of seven (7) voting members:

(1) two elected tenured faculty representatives each from:

(i) the humanities and fine arts;
(ii) the social and behavioral sciences;
(iii) the natural sciences (one from physical sciences or mathematics and one from biological or marine sciences).

(2) one non-tenure track faculty representative;

The UUP Faculty Grievance Officer shall serve as a consultant in all matters that might overlap with appropriate UUP domains.
