Purpose

To establish effective means whereby students and faculty can participate in and make recommendations concerning the formation of policies and programs relating to student and academic affairs.

Policy/Guideline

  1. Student and Faculty Participation in Development of Campus Policies and Programs
    1. The Tennessee Board of Regents recognizes that students and faculty are vital components of the campus community which must effectively contribute to the progress and general welfare of the institutions governed by the Board.
    2. Students should have a primary interest in matters of student life, including discipline and housing, and faculty should have a primary interest in academic affairs, including curriculum, program changes and development, and admission and graduation requirements. Furthermore, both students and faculty have a direct interest in both student and academic affairs.
    3. Therefore, it is the policy of the Board that each institution shall establish effective means whereby students and faculty can participate in and make recommendations concerning the formation of policies and programs relating to student and academic affairs.
    4.  Due to differences in sizes of the various institutions, and existing methods at some institutions which may effectively provide for faculty and student participation, each institution shall determine and make known the method and degree of student and faculty involvement in specific areas of institutional decision-making, subject to the approval of the Chancellor.
