Faculty Senate Mission
The Faculty Senate represents the teaching faculty in the university governance system. It monitors all topics of interest to faculty and attempts to assure that the faculty perspective is considered prior to decision-making on all important governance issues.
This broad charge, combined with specific Constitutional obligations to consider any recommendation submitted in writing by a faculty member, has led the Senate to take an interest in a variety of academic and policy issues. If you wish to bring any issue or concern to the Senate's attention, please free to contact a senator by clicking the "Senators" link above.
