Neil Marsh, professor of chemistry in LSA and of biological chemistry in the Medical School, will chair the University of Michigan’s central faculty governance system for 2018-19.
Joy Beatty, associate professor of management studies in the UM-Dearborn College of Business, will serve as vice chair.
The Senate Advisory Committee on University Affairs, central faculty governance’s nine-member executive arm, approved both positions at its meeting Monday.
Both positions are for one-year terms that begin May 1. Marsh and Beatty will hold the same positions for the Senate Assembly and Faculty Senate.
The Senate Assembly consists of 74 elected faculty members from the Ann Arbor, Dearborn and Flint campuses. The Faculty Senate consists of all professorial faculty, librarians, full-time research faculty, executive officers and deans.
Marsh will succeed Robert Ortega, associate professor of social work in the School of Social Work. Beatty will succeed Ruth Carlos, professor of radiology in the Medical School.
