University-wide Faculty Senate
The university-wide faculty senate provides input on university-wide plans and policies, fosters collaboration among the university’s schools, and consults with the president, provost and school deans to offer recommendations on matters of academic and non-academic administration. The senate, comprised of elected members from each of the schools, meets monthly during the academic year.
