Academic Governance

The governance structure of New Jersey Institute of Technology is parliamentary in nature. Major decisions affecting the faculty and the academic programs must be approved by the faculty as a whole. Such issues are often first considered and debated by the Faculty Council, an elected representative group of the faculty.

The administrative work of the university is mostly carried out by the administrative staff. There are many areas of effort where input is needed from faculty and instructional staff to ensure the proper functioning of the university. To meet these needs, a system of standing committees exists. The Office of the Provost coordinates appointments to these committees and also maintains the records of who is currently serving on these committees, what their charge is, and keeps records of their minutes.

A few, select members of the faculty hold appointments as foundation chairs and professors. These individuals through their contributions to the university community lead by example.
