Faculty participation in governance promotes and encourages diversity of ideas, a sense of shared responsibility, collaboration, collegiality, and institutional excellence, and is essential to the well-being of the University. This chapter sets forth the principles for faculty governance at the University of Michigan and provides information about participation at both the unit and central levels. For further information on unit-level faculty governance, check with the departmental or collegiate unit.
