PMB Faculty Resource Pages

PMB Faculty members are part of a collegial community that starts with department and connections throughout the campus.  Faculty members have access to department and campus resources that support them in their teaching, research and service.  PMB Leadership is available for all issues and concerns,  adminstrative matters can be directed to the department manager.

The campus Office for Faculty Equity and Welfare is the gateway to campus resources for faculty

PMB Faculty Committees

Faculty serve on a number of committees with support and input from graduate students, postdocs, lab scientists and staff.

Committee members change from time to time and are updated on this page. Committees are usually announced in July / August, just prior to the start of the new academic year. Generally, the commitment on a committee is one year.
