The role of faculty committees in the governance of Wake Forest University is deeply rooted in tradition and is vital to the day-to-day and long-term progress of the institution. This is codified broadly in Chapter 7 of the Faculty Handbook and occurs in part through the work of executive, advisory, special, and ad-hoc committees and in faculty meetings. Committee service is an expected and vital part of a faculty member’s contribution to the governance of the University.
Service, along with teaching and scholarship, is evaluated annually and is a valued and important aspect of merit evaluation. Serving as a committee member or, for more experienced faculty members, as a committee chair, is one of the most visible and impactful demonstrations of service.
