LSU A&M Faculty Council Meetings

The LSU A&M Faculty Council consists of full-time members of the academic staff having the rank of Instructor or higher (or equivalent ranks) shall constitute the faculty of the campus on which they are appointed. The faculty may organize itself into a Faculty Council which shall include all full-time members of the faculty and members of the Administrative Council. As a class, part-time members of the academic staff having the rank of Instructor or higher (or equivalent ranks) may be enfranchised to the degree deemed appropriate by the faculties of the several campuses. Members of the Administrative Council, not holding academic rank, shall be non-voting members of the Faculty Council.  (see Board of Supervisors Bylaws & Regulations)

Each faculty or Faculty Council shall meet at least once each academic year at the call of the President as chair or of the Chancellor of the campus or, for LSU, the President’s designee, as vice-chair, or upon the written request of 50 members or 20 percent of the
membership, whichever is the smaller number. At least five days notice of meeting shall be given. It shall be the prerogative of the President to preside; otherwise, the Chancellor of the campus or, for LSU, the President’s designee, will preside. (see Board of Supervisors Bylaws and Regulations)

The purpose of a Faculty Council meeting is two-fold: 1) To keep faculty members informed of Faculty Senate activities and 2) to allow discussion of faculty interests and concerns with the upper administration.

The Council meeting provides a forum for expressions of opinions above and beyond the discussions and actions of the Faculty Senate.  Items which have been approved by vote of the Senate may be placed on the Council’s Agenda for discussion in accordance with Article III, Sections 6 and 7, of the Faculty Council By-Laws.
