The Faculty Grievance Hearing Committee will be composed of nine (9) members elected by the faculty at-large: Three members from each of the ranks of Professor, Associate Professor, and Assistant Professor. Five members of the FGHC, with each rank represented on the hearing panel, will conduct hearings.

If the grievant is from any rank other than those specified by Sections 3.8.5, 3.8.6, and 3.8.7, or holds a part-time faculty appointment, all professorial ranks must be represented on the hearing panel.

Nomination and election shall follow procedures for other at-large faculty elections. The term of office of a member of the FGHC shall be three years; members shall have staggered terms.

NOTE: University Committee--Faculty Members Serve Three-Year Terms


Description:

Faculty Handbook 7.3.4.16 University Forum Committee

(a) Members on Committee: 7 faculty. The vice-provost for undergraduate education shall serve as an ex-officio non-voting member and shall convene the first meeting, at which the voting membership shall elect a chair;

(b) report to: the provost and executive vice-chancellor;

(c) areas of responsibility: select and arrange for campus appearances of a variety of distinguished speakers for the purpose of enlightening and educating the campus community on issues of current interest: administer the External Scholars Grant Program, which brings distinguished academics and scholars from across all disciplinary areas to enhance the scholarship and/or pedagogy of the faculty.


The mission of the University Forum Committee is to bring distinguished speakers to the campus of Appalachian State University for the purpose of enlightening and educating the university community about issues of interest. The goal of an active and engaging speaker series should be to promote the exchange of ideas through the process of civil discourse. Invited speakers play an integral role in the educational experience by exposing students, staff, and faculty to new ideas; and they help advance the learning process by challenging people with new and perhaps controversial ideas. Exposure to such ideas helps to prepare students to be the leaders of tomorrow, to develop an awareness of the role that ideas play in a democratic society, and to think critically about issues of concern to themselves and society.

The committee also administers the External Scholars Grant Program. This program is designed to facilitate bringing in distinguished academics and scholars from across all fields of inquiry for the purpose of enhancing the scholarship and/or pedagogy of the faculty.
