Delegates Assembly: The Delegates Assembly proposes actions and resolutions and reviews and ratifies major decisions of the Executive Council. Delegates are elected from and represent UVM’s academic units (such as Arts and Sciences, CEMS, Rubenstein, Libraries, Nursing). The Delegates Assembly also works with the negotiating team to ensure that faculty interests and concerns from the different academic units are well represented in collective bargaining.
Executive Council: At the center of United Academics is the Executive Council, whose members include the President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, and 3 members at-large. Officers are elected every two years by United Academics members, and and have primary responsibility for key decisions such as appointing a negotiating team to represent UVM faculty in the collective bargaining process.
