The Faculty Senate is the body to which all faculty committees except the Organization Committee and the Elections Committee report. All faculty are members of the senate, which is presided over by the Senate Chair, as outlined in the faculty constitution.
The main responsibilities of the senate are to act as a liaison between the faculty and the campus administration, to aid in campus planning and academic policies and to stand as a consultive agency when called upon by the Chancellor.
It meets at least once a month, September through May. A certain number of Senators are elected from each faculty rank (Professor, Associate Professor, etc.) to hold position in the senate, but all faculty members are invited to attend meetings. More information about these procedures are laid out in the faculty constitution.
