Shared Governance at Detroit Mercy: McNichols Faculty Assembly (MFA)

McNichols Faculty Assembly (MFA)

As stated in the “Joint Policy Statement on a Faculty Rights and Responsibilities Framework” adopted by the university’s Board of Trustees and the UDMPU, “The faculty has primary responsibility for such fundamental areas as curriculum, subject matter and methods of instruction, research, faculty status (everything except hiring and firing decisions), promotion and tenure process, and academic/program standards, and with shared responsibility for supporting those procedures for admission of students and other aspects of university life that relate to the educational process.” The MFA serves as the representative body of the McNichols faculty in shared governance and is an organized structure through which the McNichols faculty has exercised meaningful decision-making responsibility on fundamental academic issues, developed innovative faculty ideas, and engaged in discussions regarding areas of common concern.
