The Faculty Advisory Board

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.
