The Yeshiva University Faculty Council serves as a forum that enables faculty from across the institution to consider and resolve critical governance and educational issues. The council is the organization through which the various faculty bodies participate in the formulation of University-wide academic policies.
The faculty of the undergraduate and graduate schools of Yeshiva University, with the exception of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, are represented in the Faculty Council. Participating are the faculty bodies of:
- Yeshiva College
- Stern College for Women
- Sy Syms School of Business
- Undergraduate Torah Studies
- Azrieli Graduate School of Jewish Education and Administration
- Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law
- Bernard Revel Graduate School of Jewish Studies
- Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology
- Wurzweiler School of Social Work
Additionally, the provost and one representative from the Deans' Council are regular participants in all general session meetings of the Faculty Council. See the List of Representatives.
Current officers of the council are Paula Geyh (YC) Speaker; Charles Swencionis (Ferkauf) Vice-Speaker, Nora Nachumi (SCW), Parliamentarian. One representative from each school also sits on the Executive Committee of the Faculty Council. See a report released by the Executive Committee in spring 2015. By-laws govern the functions of the council and its committees.
