Strategic Goals and Objectives


Ensure Fair and Equitable workloads

  • UAS will request an annual report from the Provost’s Office regarding the impact of the Faculty Workload and Rewards Policy.
  • UAS will report annually to faculty regarding the progress toward equitable workloads.
  • Because excellent teaching and active scholarship are the foundations of faculty and student life at Grand Valley, UAS will survey and report regarding the frequency, method, and use of re-assigned time.

Enhance Governance Effectiveness within the University

  • UAS will survey faculty periodically to identify and generate long-term governance ideas and initiatives.
  • At the last UAS meeting before changing membership Senators will help identify goals/activities for faculty governance during the upcoming academic year.

Examine and Develop Governance Structures and Leadership
