Faculty Assembly Delegates

Representation in the Faculty Assembly is apportioned among the constituent institutions of the University of North Carolina according to the number of full-time equivalent faculty positions allocated to each institution.  Thus, Appalachian State is apportioned four delegates to the Assembly as of April 2011.  (Appalachian was allotted a fifth delegate seat in June 2009 and  the Appalachian State lost one delegate seat April 2011 per UNC Faculty Assembly). 

By action of the Faculty Senate of Appalachian State, the Chair of  the Senate serves as head of Appalachian's delegation (lead delegate) to the Assembly, with the Vice Chair of the Senate serving as his or her alternate.  The remaining three delegates and alternate are elected by the faculty when a seat is vacant or a term expires during the spring term prior to March 31.  The Chair of the Faculty Senate serves a one (1) year term coterminously with his or her position as Chair, with the four (4) elected delegates serving three (3) year terms.  Terms of the three-year delegates are staggered.

Role of Faculty Assembly Delegates

Although it is assumed Appalachian's Faculty Assembly delegates will vote their conscience, it is also assumed that they will convey to the Faculty Assembly, and to the President of the University of North Carolina, resolutions approved by the Faculty Senate and/or general faculty and specifically addressed to the Assembly.  This role includes the written rationale provided by the Senate and/or general faculty in support of a resolution. 

Any Assembly delegate is free to disagree with such a resolution and the rationale behind it once the resolution has been presented.  The Chair of the Faculty Senate (or alternate), being a delegate to the Assembly, reports to the Senate actions taken by the Assembly on such resolutions.

Replacement of Faculty Assembly Delegates

In the event that an elected delegate to the Faculty Assembly must vacate office for the balance of a term, that delegate's alternate will automatically become the permanent delegate and serve out the balance of the term of the replaced delegate.

In the event that an elected alternate delegate to the Faculty Assembly must vacate his or her office by either becoming a permanent replacement for an elected delegate or by resignation, the Chair of the Faculty Senate nominates a replacement for the now vacant alternate and, upon approval of the Senate, appoints the replacement to serve until the next regular election of Assembly delegates.

In the event that an elected delegate is unable to fulfill the responsibilities of office for a temporary period, that delegate is replaced by an alternate for the duration of the absence.  The Chair of the Senate fills the vacancy of the alternate by nominating a replacement who, upon approval of the Senate, serves until such time that the elected alternate delegate is able to resume office.
