Faculty Requirements & Responsibilities

  Home>>Faculty>>Faculty Requirements and Responsibilities
The EECP faculty is an interdisciplinary group of scholars drawn from a wide range of departments at the 
University of Georgia. To become an EECP Faculty member, an applicant must have taught an 
approved course in the Certificate Program, have advised a Certificate paper or a thesis or dissertation 
in environmental ethics in the past two years, or be engaged in research or publication in the field of environmental ethics. A faculty member is nominated by a current EECP faculty member. The 
nomination is presented by the sponsoring faculty member at one of the regular EECP faculty 
meetings. A nominee is elected or rejected by a majority vote of the EECP faculty present.

To remain active, a faculty member must fulfill one of the following criteria: (a) attend one 
evening seminar or faculty meeting per year; (b) serve as an adviser or reader on an EECP 
student's paper committee; or (c) provide some other equivalent service to the Program. Once a 
year, the EECP chair screens EECP faculty who do not meet one of these criteria and informs 
the faculty member. The faculty member must choose whether to remain on the faculty, to 
resign from the faculty, or to become a friend. All faculty activities in the EECP are voluntary; 
no faculty member is paid by the Program, even if serving as a member of the Executive 
Committee or as a Coordinator.
