Role of the Faculty Senate

 

The senate 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. 

The Faculty Senate was created in November, 1959, with the ratification of the constitution of the faculty to create a mechanism "through which the faculty as a whole can initiate recommendations for the promotion of the interest of the university community."

This broad charge, combined with the specific constitutional obligation to consider any recommendation submitted in writing by a faculty member, has led the senate to take an interest in a very wide spectrum of academic and policy issues.  Please feel free to contact a faculty senator if you have questions or concerns regarding any policy or procedure.
