The Abess Center has a Faculty Advisory Committee made up by representatives of participating schools and departments. Faculty Advisory Committee members are appointed by the Provost, after consultation with the appropriate deans and the Center leadership, and serve staggered two- or three-year terms. They meet regularly to consider faculty hiring, curriculum, program development and other issues. At 18-month intervals, the Faculty Advisory Committee submits a written report to the Provost evaluating the initiatives and accomplishments of the Center, as well as of the performance of the Center’s directors.
