Dr. Patrick Pauken has been appointed Vice Provost for Governance and Faculty Relations, through August 2013, Provost Ken Borland announced yesterday. An associate professor in the School of Leadership and Policy Studies and, since 2008, secretary to the BGSU Board of Trustees, he will provide support for a broad range of academic functions. He will fulfill his commitments to the College of Education and Human Development through the end of this semester.

In his new role, Pauken is charged with cultivating and maintaining high-quality relationships with Faculty Senate, Graduate Student Senate, Undergraduate Student Senate, Administrative and Classified Staff councils, the Board of Trustees and other governance bodies and officials, as well as faculty and administrators. He will retain his current role as board secretary.

He will have responsibility for faculty collective bargaining work on behalf of the administration, from attending bargaining sessions, conducting research and compiling data for contract proposals, to assisting with costing out economic issues and facilitating the ratification of tentative agreements. Once a collective bargaining agreement is passed, he will apply it as it relates to faculty, resolving contract grievances and monitoring implementation to ensure compliance.

In addition, he will provide oversight and advice to the colleges for both campuses on policy and practice interpretations and guidelines for faculty and faculty personnel matters including, but not limited to, promotion and tenure, faculty improvement leaves, grievances and awards.

With both a Ph.D. in academic administration and a law degree, Pauken’s research and scholarship have centered on school law, higher education law, and moral and ethical leadership.

He has extensive experience as a faculty member, administrator and as Parliamentarian to Faculty Senate. Among his many awards and recognitions, he was the 2006 recipient of the Faculty Senate Distinguished Service Award.
