Faculty Senate

Overview of Faculty Senate

The Faculty Senate provides a forum and a voice for the faculty to assert its distinctive viewpoint and principles for the general welfare of the university. As duly elected representatives of the faculty, the Faculty Senate acts on matters relating to due process, governance, resource allocation, and university planning.

Together with the Staff Council and the Student Government Association, the Faculty Senate provides input to the University's Executive Cabinet through its President and through voted recommendations and resolutions.

Resources for faculty development, including teaching workshops and the leadership institute, may be found at the Center for Faculty Development.
