The Chair and Vice Chair of the UC systemwide Academic
Council sit on the Board of Regents as Faculty Representatives.
Based on a judgment made by the Academic Senate in the
mid-1970s, the Faculty Representatives do not vote but
by Regental policy are fully included in all discussion
and debate, including Regents Only sessions.
The Faculty Representatives
also serve formally as Advisory Members on all Standing and/or
Special Committees of the Regents. This arrangement allows for
the free flow of information and ideas between the UC
Academic Senate and the Board of Regents.
