Queensborough Community College

of the

City University of New York

 

 

 

The Board recognizes the historic tradition which vests both the privileges and responsibilities of academic governance in the faculty of a college. The faculty, as the body chiefly responsible for the educational mission as  well as for academic standards, is that part upon which the health of the whole institution depends. In this role, the faculty has a long tradition of collegiality, in which its various educational responsibilities are freely shared among its members.---CUNY Policy Statement on Academic Peresonnel Practice 9-22-75

 

Faculty of this College  are invited to make use of the information presented through this webpage. It provides an introduction to the role of member of the faculty and to its incumbent rights and responsibilities.  There is information on the benefits and supports available for faculty. Among them, and perhaps most important, is that of Academic Freedom that supports and protects faculty as they fulfill responsibilities in making academic judgments expressed  and effectuated through participation in shared governance at all levels within the university.  There are acts of state legislation, Board of Trustees bylaws and local governance plans that make explicit the important, essential and extensive nature of the role of faculty in making academic judgments and in shared governance.  This information is offered in support of faculty learning of their prerogatives and rights and their enjoying and fulfilling their vital role in the life and growth of this University.
