UH Hilo Faculty Congress

UH Hilo Faculty Congress

The UH Hilo Faculty Congress speaks for the faculty on academic policy matters concerning more than one unit. The UH Board of Regents recognizes that "The faculty has primary responsibility for such fundamental academic areas as curriculum content, subject matter, and methods of instruction and research. On these matters the power of review and concurrence or final decision lodged in the Board of Regents or delegated to administrative officers should be exercised adversely only in exceptional circumstances and for reasons communicated to the faculty."

-- Section 1-10 Regents' Policy on Faculty Involvement in Academic Decision Making and Academic Policy Development.
