Professor Lissa Broome completes her second full term as the University’s Faculty Athletics Representative (FAR) on June 30, 2020, and Chancellor Kevin Guskiewicz is considering her reappointment. The Advisory Committee has approved a review process that requires the establishment of a FAR review committee to make a recommendation to the chancellor based on inclusive, campus-wide feedback. Professor Joy Renner has been appointed chair of this review committee.

Section 3-4 of the Faculty Code provides: “The faculty athletics representative is appointed by the chancellor from among the voting faculty for an indefinite term, subject to formal review at least every five years. In making an appointment to this position or reviewing the incumbent, the chancellor follows a process established with the advice and consent of the Advisory Committee. The faculty athletics representative is the University’s voting delegate to the Atlantic Coast Conference and the University’s faculty representative within the National Collegiate Athletic Association. He or she makes an annual report to the Faculty Council and makes special reports to the Council from time to time as may be requested by the Agenda Committee.”

Professor Renner has posted the following supporting document for your consideration:
