Organization Structure

Draft schematics outlining the organizational structure within which the Faculty Advisory Committee on Sustainability (FACS) operates.

Organizational structure and composition of the Faculty Advisory Committee on Sustainability (FACS; blue) and its relationship to parallel administrative and student committees, which together are complemented by an informal group of three committee chairs (green, operating ad hoc for 2019-2022) coordinating and elevating sustainability efforts campus-wide.

Operational relationship of the Faculty Advisory Committee on Sustainability (FACS) to academic and senate units across campus. FACS should act as a body that aims to receive input from all constituents and to support and enrich efforts across campus. The basic workflow may be conceived as priority-setting through iterative communication between the EVC & Provost and the FACS in consultation with the Academic Senate; perspectives and advice on any issues are solicited from the faculty via a network of direct and indirect representation through nominated school members and open communication with chairs/directors of departments, general education, graduate groups, research units, and undergraduate majors that have substantive activity in sustainability education and/or research. The largest grey circle is the Division. Note that, to avoid overcomplicating the image, only a subset of formal relationships among extant bodies are represented.
