The elected representatives of 44 academic units on campus evaluate and make recommendations on academic matters, criteria for promotion and tenure, faculty appointment and retention, and a wide variety of academic support functions, such as the library and information technology. The Constitution of the Faculty gives the Faculty Senate the right to vote approval of changes in graduation requirements and the general education curriculum, as well as changes in the Faculty Handbook. It is charged with the responsibility to maintain academic freedom and responsibility at the University of Memphis. It is also a forum for the formulation of faculty opinion, through public speech and surveys of the faculty, including an annual evaluation of the president, provost and deans.
Richard Evans is Professor of Real Estate and Economics, with recent research interests in forecasting commercial real estate cycles. Since 1999, he has been supported by a forecasting grant from the City of Memphis Department of Finance that is centered in the college’s Sparks Bureau of Business and Economic Research.
