The College of Education is committed to its mission of preparing educators at all levels of experience to facilitate active learning in diverse, inclusive communities. Our faculty continually design, develop, implement, and assess academic programs to provide students with the expertise they need to shape the future of education.
The faculty, recognizing the full legal authority of the President of the University and his or her Delegates, must play a major role in the shared governance of the College. Therefore, the primary legislative and advisory board in the College of Education shall be the College Council, which shall provide for student, faculty, and administrative participation in College governance.

For all committees below (with the exception of the Promotion and Tenure committee), one voting committee member shall be elected by and from each department and shall be subject to any restrictions established by the College of Education Council Bylaws or the Academic Senate. In the event that committee members are unable to serve, the members' departments shall elect eligible replacements to serve while the original members are unavailable. Faculty members of standing committees are limited to two consecutive three-year terms (unless elected or appointed to fill an unexpired term).
The Promotion and Tenure Committee is composed of one tenured member from each department. The Dean of the College serves as a non-voting member. The faculty electorate of the College, under the jurisdiction of the College Council, elects the members. The members of the PTRM Committee are elected to a single three-year term, may not be consecutive, but may be re-elected on a staggered basis. Vacancies on the committee are filled in a special election and the newly elected member serves a three-year term. Any exceptions to this policy must be reviewed and approved by the College Council.
