The Faculty Association assists members in working through the often confusing assessment, tenure and promotion processes, individually or in workshops. The Faculty Association also has a member on each committee who helps monitor fairness and due process. Click here to learn more about our Workshops.
Members who have concerns should contact the Faculty Association directly. Members can contact the Association confidentially by email,
