About the Committee

The Governance and Communication Committee collaborates with AU colleges as appropriate to oversee issues of shared governance, to oversee and validate secure elections to the Faculty Senate, and to facilitate communication among faculty.

The committee keeps college governance structures informed on elections and Senate membership. At the direction of the AUFS, the committee reviews and conducts online surveys to monitor faculty opinion of the university and to review the administration. At the direction of the Faculty Senate the committee conducts online votes of the faculty.

The committee works to provide avenues which allow faculty to communicate with the committee and the Senate on all issues related to shared governance.
