John J. Lepri
Greetings from John Lepri, Chair of the UNCG Faculty SenateThe primary aims of our Senate are: i) to assure the best possible educational experiences for UNCG’s undergraduate and graduate students, and, ii) to vigorously defend academic freedom in teaching and scholarship for UNCG faculty. The Faculty Senate has responsibility for undergraduate and graduate curricula, academic policies, promotion and tenure policies, and faculty development and welfare. The 37 members of the Faculty Senate are elected from the College, the Schools and the University Libraries, with apportionment based on the number of eligible faculty in each unit. The Senate’s elected and appointed committees inform decisions on enrollment and retention, research, compensation and due process. In addition, advisory committees work on the budget, the Faculty Teaching and Learning Commons, athletics, scholarly communications, academic computing and numerous other areas. Faculty Senate meetings are held on the first Wednesdays of September, October, November, December, February, March and April. Senate officers meet regularly with the Chancellor, the Provost and Senate Committee chairs to advise them of faculty perspectives on academic issues on campus and beyond, legislative and budget updates, and important trends in higher education. Please contact me via email if you have Senate-related concerns.
