Department Committees and Calendar

Some of the meetings listed below are open to all members of FRIT. They are mandatory for tenure-track faculty and the staff, associated  faculty, and graduate student representatives, optional for everyone else, and all are welcome.

Some of the meetings below are for tenure-track faculty members and the staff, associated faculty, and graduate student representatives only. If there are sensitive agenda items to be discussed by tenure-track faculty only, they will be reserved for the latter part of the meeting so that the others may be free to leave early. Any pertinent information discussed that can be shared with other members of the department certainly will be.

Some meetings may end early or be cancelled depending upon the number and urgency of discussions to be had. It is also possible that an additional “emergency” meeting may need to be called for tenure-track faculty members and representatives if the College or University demands an important decision from the department at some point during the year (although this is rare); in such a case we will just do our best to obtain a quorum.

Meetings this year will be hybrid. Please join in person when you are able. You may also join via Zoom. Links will be sent out with agenda the Friday before the meeting.
