University Faculty Senate
The University Faculty Senate is a governance body concerned with matters of general university educational policy, including curriculum, academic calendar and schedule, admissions, registration, and degree programs. It may also consider and provide advice to the President and others on university-wide issues of general faculty concern, including university budgeting and planning and any organizational changes or policies affecting more than one campus, college, or division.
