Shared Governance at Detroit Mercy: MFA Committees

MFA Committees

The MFA makes recommendations to the Provost/VPAA and the President regarding academic issues of concern to the McNichols campus faculty as a whole, including issues related to the protection of freedom as well as major reorganizations that impact schools or colleges on the McNichols campus. Under the governance process, the MFA has the authority to review proposals for new degree programs, majors, minors, and revisions to current degree programs, majors, or minors that are so substantial that the Provost/VPAA and MFA conclude jointly such review is required.

The MFA is required to maintain the committees described, however it ia allowed to establish additional subcommittees or identify a task force of McNichols faculty members to advise the MFA or develop ideas for the MFA.
