Welcome to the UNC-Chapel Hill Office of Faculty Governance! The Office provides administrative support for the Faculty Council, the Chair of the Faculty, the Secretary of the Faculty, and many of the standing committees of the General Faculty. We also conduct all the faculty-wide elections, held in the spring each year.  Our work is guided by the policies and procedures outlined in the Faculty Code of University Government, which has, since 1950, outlined a system of representative participation by the university’s faculty in decision-making about key academic matters at the heart of the university’s work and mission.
