UAA Caucus

The UAA Caucus was formed as a shared governance innovation. UAA Caucus is a mechanism for collective conversation and advancing our goals as a University. We regularly bring together shared governance leaders from the Faculty Senate, USUAA and Staff Council with the Vice Chancellors and Chancellor for meaningful conversations. The formation of the UAA Caucus was the Chancellor's direct response for better university-wide communication regarding decision-making.
