Faculty Senate

  • Definition and Scope of the Faculty Senate


    The Faculty Senate is a representative organization of elected faculty members and of certain ex-officio members of the Administration. The purpose of the Faculty Senate is to provide faculty participation in institutional self-evaluation and in the formulation of University policy.


    The practical means by which this participating is to be achieved resides in the power of the Faculty Senate to appoint standing and ad hoc committees, which shall submit periodic reports of their findings for the approval of the Faculty Senate. In turn, the Faculty Senate shall communicate its decisions to the faculty at large. All such decisions are subject to the approval of the President of the University.
