Committee on Academic Title-Holder Representation

[ One-Page PDF Overview  |    PPT Slide OverviewPost Your Insights ]

It is through the Faculty Senate that the tenured and tenure-track faculty are represented. Every department/academic unit has one or two Senators. There are also nine senator-at-large seats rendering a body that has about 100 members.

We are looking for ways to improve representation for the thousands of academic titleholders  who are distributed across the colleges. The Committee has this charge and these members.

Assembled on this background webpage is information on how titles, title modifiers, and shared governance work at Cornell. Also provided are links to a recent survey of NTT titleholders, a 2004 Senate Report, and how NTT representation is handled at peer institutions.

After considerable deliberation, the Committee has formulated a plan whereby NTT titleholders are represented through the Faculty Senate.

Before formalizing its recommendations and launching the required review and approval process, we would like to hear from the community. You can post general comments on the proposal here or specific comments on any of the following webpages:

R1 The RTE Faculty
R2 Senate Membership for RTE Faculty
R3 Senators with Department-Like Constituencies
R4 Designated Senate Seats for RTE-Faculty
R5 Post Doc Representation
R6 Creation of an “RTE-Faculty Issues” Committee
R7 RTE-Faculty Membership on Senate Committees
R8 RTE Faculty and the UFC and N&E
R9 Voting for DoF, Associate DoF, UFC, N&E, and Faculty Trustee
R10 Getting Support From All the Assemblies
