Faculty Council

Purpose of the Faculty Council:

“The USC Libraries Faculty Council has overall responsibility for all Library Faculty governance including professional rights and responsibilities, professional status, library policy and management. The Council meets regularly with and advises the Dean of the USC Libraries regarding faculty viewpoints on library operations and policies. The Faculty Council members also serve as the Libraries’ representative to the USC Academic Senate.” (from Library Faculty Governance document, 10/25/21)

During the Council year (July 1-June 30) the elected officers of the Council and the elected members of the council's standing committees (Elections; Personnel; Professional Development; Research) develop and implement projects, policies, and procedures to ensure the continued operations of the USC Libraries and to support library faculty professional development and achievements.
