The Faculty Leadership Council advises IonE’s director, plays a central role in guiding faculty participation in IonE and ensures that faculty concerns are incorporated into IonE goals and decisions. Members do not officially represent their colleges or departments but are encouraged to think of the wishes and needs of fellow faculty members. The council’s agenda is suggested by the IonE director and prioritized and led by its members.
