The Faculty Assembly of the School
of Allied Health Professions (SAHP) consists of all
full-time faculty members (75% FTE or greater) with
academic rank of Instructor or above. Its purpose
is to provide a means of communication between faculty
and administration, and to provide a formal mechanism
for faculty input into academic processes.
The Faculty Assembly was created
in 1995 after the Southern Association of Colleges and
Schools, in a 1994 site visit, suggested greater
contribution of faculty to governance at LSU Health
Sciences Center. Initially the Assembly included
faculty from both New Orleans and Shreveport campuses,
while election of an Assembly President alternated
annually between the two campuses. In 2001 the New
Orleans and Shreveport faculty assemblies became
separate entities, with each assembly electing its own
The Faculty Assembly is
represented by nine delegates, each of whom is elected
for a 3-year term, and two alternate delegates.
Faculty Assembly delegate meetings are held on the
second Tuesday of each month (Dean’s conference room, 6th
floor, Nursing/Allied Health building, from 12 p.m. to
1:30 p.m.) and are open to all members of the faculty.
SAHP faculty members who wish to add an item to the
monthly meeting agenda may contact any Faculty Assembly
delegate or alternate delegate at least one week prior
to the meeting.
