Faculty Senate

Purpose:

Represent the College of Education faculty on the University Faculty Senate.  

Faculty Senate serves a critical role as an advisory body on matters of general welfare to the University. The bimonthly meetings of the Senate bring together 30 Senators drawn from the faculty of the seven SHSU colleges, as well as the Newton Grisham Library. 

The Faculty Senate is dedicated to examining issues of interest to the entire SHSU community, including the development of the university's core curriculum, review of official university policies, and the administration of the annual Campus Perception Survey. As an advocate for the interests of new and experienced faculty alike, the Faculty Senate endeavors to advance the culture and prestige of the University.

Committee Composition:

The committee is comprised of Senators elected each spring semester to serve for a term of three consecutive years.

The Faculty Senate shall be composed of no more than 30 full-time faculty members. Persons who are not full-time faculty members and persons holding administrative positions with the rank of program coordinator or above shall not be eligible to serve.

Expectations:

The Senators elected to the Faculty Senate will represent the College of Education in all relevant Senate matters, and will report back to the COE all relevant discussion and decisions. 

Reporting Structure:

The Chair of the committee reports to the Executive Council and the Dean of the College of Education as appropriate.
