Faculty Privilege and Academic Personnel Advisers

With five faculty members appointed to the panel of advisers, workload distribution is critical and must be managed effectively. Therefore, the analyst assigned by the Academic Senate Office to support the advisers will provide the initial point of contact from members of the Faculty. For assistance please contact:

Edwin M. Arevalo
Executive Director, Davis Division of the Academic Senate

  • The Senate analyst will distribute workload according to grouping of colleges/professional schools roughly based on discipline.
  • The Senate analyst will disclose the adviser's name and department to the faculty member to assure there is no professional or personal affiliation. If an affiliation is determined, the analyst will facilitate contact between the faculty member and the Chair of the Faculty Privilege and Academic Personnel Advisers or one of the other advisers as needed to eliminate any conflict or discomfort.
