  • at least one representative of the baccalaureate program,
  • at least one representative of the associate of science program, and
  • at least TWO adjunct faculty members.

Participation on the CETL Board qualifies as a professional development opportunity for faculty evaluations.
 

CETL Membership Selection

For the initial selection of Faculty Board, the Faculty Governance Organization (FGO) solicited nominations and self-nominations for all CETL Faculty Board positions. A slate of nominations was selected in September, 2010, and recommended to the FGO president and the Senior Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs. The confirmed Board selected the first Faculty Board of Director Chair.

For subsequent board member selections, the CETL Faculty Board Chair and the CETL Director will work with the CETL board to solicit applications from all faculty college-wide for vacant CETL Board seats. The CETL Board will review all applicants and select new board members.

 

Length of Service

To maintain consistency of membership, the initial Board members will serve in either two-year or three-year commitments. After inception, the length of service will be in two-year staggered appointments in order to keep all Faculty Board Member appointments from ending at the same time.
