The higher education Faculty of the College of Education is a community of scholars dedicated to the concept that policy making within a college be decentralized to the faculty level. The intent is that policy in the College of Education shall be made in a collegial fashion by the Dean and the Faculty Assembly working cooperatively.

The Assembly is committed to the following governing principles:

  1. Academic freedom. [1]
  2. Open democratic communication and participation.
  3. Sustaining and creating opportunities for faculty voice in all aspects of the College of Education governance.
  4. Commitment to a professional ethic that supports multiple/ alternative perspectives.

All full-time members of the higher education faculty of the College who hold tenure or all members who have tenure-earning positions, are voting members except those on leave of absence, sabbatical, or medical leave. This includes chairs, associate deans and deans who hold tenured or tenure-earning positions.

This year's activities have centered around the theme of "COLLABORATE, COORDINATE AND COMMUNICATE". Our MyFAU presence and our web presence are two attempts to address our theme.

[1] It is the policy of FAU to support academic freedom and responsibility in teaching, research, and other creative activities, and service. Faculty have a right to scholarly inquiry, including the selection of instructional materials without censorship or fear of retaliation. Faculty have a responsibility to conduct scholarly inquiry in an objective and professional manner, which includes the acknowledgement of a variety of scholarly opinions.
