The Faculty participate in governing the university through the Faculty Senate, various college and department committees, and through several campus wide administrative committees. The responsibility of the Faculty is in educational policy rather than administrative decisions.

The Faculty, acting with the President, determine all matters of educational policy with respect to academic programs including degree requirements, honorary degrees, academic standards, and general University development. Acting on behalf of the Faculty, the Senate receives, reviews and acts on reports, recommendations, and proposals from its standing committees and individual Senators. Faculty Senate business is conducted through regular meetings of the whole, through the Executive Committee and through its standing committees. The Senate submits recommendations in writing to the University President. The President and appropriate staff review each recommendation and the President either approves, disapproves or returns the recommendation for further Senate consideration.

Administrative committees are appointed by the university administration and are not offically part of the Senate system of governance. However, their actions directly impact the faculty and the entire university and for this reason they are also listed on these pages.

A complete discussion of university governance and the role of the Faculty Senate and its committees can be found in the Faculty Manual.
