Faculty Governance

The College of Business and the University of Michigan–Dearborn operate under a shared governance system.

Faculty governance is exercised most directly through regular meetings of the entire Governing Faculty. The Governing Faculty, through the COB by-Laws, have authorized a number of faculty committees to assist the Governing Faculty in their work. These committees consist of elected professorial faculty, as well as non-voting members representing the College administration.  The primary campus-wide instrument of faculty governance is the Faculty Senate.
