Faculty Assembly Steering Committee

Faculty Assembly Steering Committee (FASC)

As outlined in the bylaws for faculty governance at KUMC (p. 15-16 in the Faculty Handbook), the Faculty Affairs Steering Committee shall be composed of 10 members. The committee will consist of three elected tenured or tenure-track members of the assembly (one from each school), the chairperson of the Faculty Council of the School of Medicine, the chairpersons of the Steering Committees of the School of Nursing, and the School of Health Professions, and the chairpersons of other standing committees of the assembly: Election, Faculty Concerns, Information Resources, and Research. The Executive Vice Chancellor or designee and the Steering Committee Representative to the Executive Vice Chancellor's Diversity and Inclusion Cabinet will be ex officio members (non-voting). A chair and chair-elect will serve the committee; the chair will serve for one year and the chair-elect will serve as chair in the following term. The chair and chair-elect positions will rotate sequentially from the elected at-large representatives of the School of Medicine to the School of Nursing to the School of Health Professions.

The FASC committee members for 2020-2021 are outlined below.
