The University Assembly examines matters which involve the interests of, or concerns the welfare of, a substantial segment of the University community, and makes recommendations to the appropriate officers or decision-making bodies of the University.
With faculty, staff, undergraduates, and graduate or professional students appointed or elected by each of the shared governance bodies, the UA takes up issues of common interest to all members of the Cornell community. It has responsibility over the Campus Code of Conduct, is a stakeholder in major university policy initiatives, and works to establish and maintain open, effective, and efficient channels of communication between and amongst the community and university administration. The University Assembly must approve each appointment or reappointment by the President of the University to the following offices: the Judicial Administrator, the University Ombudsman, and the Judicial Codes Counselor.
