IANR Liaison Committee

Pillars on east campus

Our Mission

The main purpose of the IANR Liaison Committee is to represent the faculty as an advisory group to the Vice Chancellor.

Additional Roles Include:

Evaluation of Faculty and Administrators. Each IANR administrative division/unit will utilize the same standard system for evaluation of IANR faculty. Additional evaluation inputs such as student evaluations, county extension board evaluations, etc., may be a part of the division or unit procedure. The IANR system shall be designed to fulfill the requirements of the Board of Regents and UNL Bylaws and it shall be approved by the IANR Liaison Committee.

Amendments to the IANR Bylaws

It is the responsibility of the Liaison Committee to tabulate and report results of voting on amendments to the IANR Bylaws.

Committee Elections

Members of the Liaison Committee are elected by the faculty. The current committee shall annually appoint 2 nominees for each open position to be voted on by the faculty. A tie vote shall be broken by action of the Liaison Committee.

Creation of Ad Hoc Committees

All matters requiring committee action not covered by the Liaison Committee shall be conducted by committees appointed by the Liaison Committee by majority vote or the Vice Chancellor in consultation with the Liaison Committee.
