Charge

The Faculty Senate provides guidance and recommendations to College Affairs, Academic Affairs, and the Instructional Administration on faculty-related issues.

This committee provides a process for decision-making in relation to faculty evaluation, promotions, tenure, professional improvement, and sabbaticals, and facilitates communication across the campus community on faculty-related issues.

Members

The committee membership represents the entire faculty including full-time, adjunct, part-time, and adult basic skills. Representatives serve specific constituency groups that represent a diversity of faculty viewpoints.
