The Faculty Review Committee is an advisory committee to the Chancellor; hears any faculty member or professional librarian who believes that she/he has not received equitable treatment regarding salary, working conditions, workload allocation, teaching assignments, performance review, grants administration, student-faculty relations, professional treatment, promotion, tenure, and academic freedom not related to non-reappointment or termination. The FRC is a standing committee of the University and consists of elected, full-time tenured faculty members and professional librarians.
