  • Advise: The FLAC advises and makes recommendations on the library policies, resources, space, assessment, new initiatives, and matters pertaining to the retention and academic success of students.

Members:

            The FLAC is composed of faculty members representing all the schools of the University, the University Librarian, and librarians.  Academic department heads and other guests may be invited to attend depending on specific agenda items.  All faculty appointments are for two years and may be renewed for another term if no other faculty in that school is available to serve.  The FLAC is co-chaired by the University Librarian and an elected faculty member from the membership.

Meetings:
