The University Faculty

Office of the Dean


[There are bound to be questions as we  transition to the new representation set-up. You can post them below.]

An individual with University Voting Rights (UVR) is eligible to serve in the Faculty Senate and can vote in University-wide elections that determine the Faculty Trustees, the Dean of Faculty, the Associate Dean of Faculty, the University Faculty Committee, and the Nominations and Elections Committee. Individuals with UVR can also vote in elections that determine the senators from their own department and the RTE senators from  their college.

In the following table, University Faculty in blue have UVR. We use “UF* ” to designate this group of academic titleholders.

In the following table, RTE Faculty in blue have UVR. We use “RTE*  ” to designate this group of academic titleholders.
