Faculty Governance

Faculty governance at PLU empowers faculty, subject to the approval of the Board of Regents, in the area of educational policy.  Faculty also have the right to make recommendations and advise the administration with respect to other areas of university life.  There are four key features to PLU's system of faculty governance: the Faculty Constitution and Bylaws, the Faculty Assembly, the faculty committee system, and the faculty officers.  The Faculty Constitution and Bylaws can be found in the Faculty Handbook.
