Governance

Lion Statue

The Faculty Senate is the primary governance body for University Faculty, providing governance for issues not covered by the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the University of Cincinnati and the American Association of University Professors (AAUP), Cincinnati Chapter, 2007-2010.  As stated in 27.2.7:

With respect to Faculty priorities in those areas not specifically dealt with through the collective bargaining process, both parties to this Agreement recognize the Faculty Senate as the primary governance body representing the Faculty which shall have the right to advise the President and the Vice Presidents.

Another key source of governance for the University Faculty is in College, School, and Department Bylaws and Faculty handbooks and should be consulted for specific information about your units.

In addition to the Board Rules governing the faculty right to a voice in decision making across the university, shared governance is articulated in Article 27 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement.  For more information on how the shared-governance process works, visit the 2019-21 AAUP Collective Bargaining Contract.
