FAB, the Faculty Advisory Board, is the elected executive committee of the Libraries’ Faculty and serves as a liaison between the Libraries’ Faculty and the University Librarian. The Committee is composed of the Chair & Vice-Chair, the elected Chairs of the standing Faculty Committees, two general members and the Libraries’ University Council representatives. The Vice-Chair of FAB is elected for a two-year term, serving one year as Vice-Chair and then becoming Chair the following year.
The standing committees represented on FAB are:
Committee on Faculty Organization and Governance
Committee on Nominations and Elections
Committee on Professional Development and Research
Committee on Promotion
FAB meets monthly. Meetings typically include a report from the University Librarian, discussion of issues raised by faculty and/or in the University Librarian’s report, and updates from the standing committees. FAB also arranges the quarterly Faculty meetings.
