The shared governance structure of the COE has been designed to enable faculty to have a major influence on the policy and direction of the College of Education. The Shared Leadership Team is an integral part of the communication process. Meetings of the Shared Leadership Team are open meetings with the exception of deliberations about sensitive personnel matters. Each School has an elected representative to the leadership team that should communicate to and be a liaison for faculty within their school. The Faculty handbook lays out the membership of the Shared Leadership Team.

FDRC solicts nominees and serves as the review panel for the COE awards. They make recommendations to the Dean on who receives these each year and who moves forward for university awards. For a complete list of awards and timelines click here.
Sabbatical leave may be requested by faculty members for the purpose of improving professional competence and effectiveness of service to the University. Members of the faculty may apply for a maximum leave of one calendar year (12 months) at reduced salary or a maximum leave of one-half year (6 months) at full salary. To qualify for a sabbatical leave, the candidate must have served as a faculty member for at least six academic years since initial appointment. Acceptance by the faculty member of a sabbatical leave entails an obligation to serve the University for one subsequent year, or refund to the University the salary paid while on leave. Faculty applying for sabbatical leave should contact University Personnel Services about benefits: OTRS requires special handling.
