Faculty Assembly Overview

Faculty Assembly and Governance at KUMC

The Faculty Assembly is a joint body consisting of faculty of the University of Kansas Medical Center. Faculty are defined as appointed by the University of Kansas Medical Center on any track, at instructor, assistant professor, associate professor, or professor level by the School of Medicine (Kansas City, Wichita, and Salina campuses), the School of Nursing, or the School of Health Professions (with greater or equal to 50% FTE to vote). The Faculty Assembly contributes to the definition of educational goals, objectives, programs and policies of the Medical Center, as well as the planning and development of faculty and support for research. The group shall provide input to the administration on these matters. The Faculty Assembly is composed of the following subdivisions: the faculty of the School of Medicine including the Kansas City, Wichita, and Salina campuses, the faculty of the School of Nursing, and the faculty of the School of Health Professions. Each school has its own faculty organization with appropriate standing committees. The Faculty Assembly meets at least twice each year, and the presiding officer for the Faculty Assembly is the chair of the Faculty Assembly Steering Committee.

The bylaws for Faculty Assembly are outlined on pages 11-18 in the Handbook for Faculty and Other Unclassified Staff.
