The Faculty Policies and Procedures Committee reviews existing university policies and procedures and considers changes to the UAB Faculty Handbook. Its recommendations concerning revisions to the UAB Faculty Handbook or to existing policies and procedures are forwarded to the senate. The senate must make final recommendations to the President and designee regarding changes to the UAB Faculty Handbook or to existing policies and procedures. The FPPC also provides feedback on policies developed or revised by Enterprise and University compliance committees. FPPC feedback is forwarded to the initiating committee and copied to the Chair of the Senate. (Senate Bylaws Article II.2.a)

The UAB Faculty Handbook is posted on the UAB Policies & Procedures Library website, select “Faculty Handbook” under the “Manuals and Handbooks” menu option near the top of the page.
