News & Announcements
The University Senate was created by the Board of Trustees on July 7, 1972. Its 137 members comprise three constituencies: 70 faculty, 26 administrators, and 41 students. Regular meetings are scheduled at least seven times during the academic year and held on Thursday afternoons. The meetings are open to all members of the university community.
Subject to the authority of the Board of Trustees, the Senate has been delegated the legislative authority of the university faculty over educational and academic policy (Referendum vote of the University Faculty, May 11, 1973). From this action, and Rule 3335-5-41 of the Administrative Code, the Senate derives its principal powers on academic and educational matters.
