In this Section

The Faculty Senate is the official representative voice of the faculty. The Faculty Senate seeks to foster cordial working relationships between the administration and the faculty, in an atmosphere of mutual respect and confidence, thereby promoting the welfare of the University.

The Faculty Senate:

  • has the responsibility and authority to review and discuss all matters which it shall deem as within its legitimate concern,
  • may initiate recommendations or take other appropriate action on matters, subject to review by the president and/or the Board of Trustees,
  • has primary responsibility for recommending policy in such fundamental areas as curriculum, standards, research, faculty status, and those aspects of student activity which relate directly to the educational process.
