There are two classes of senators: appointed and elected. The appointed senators represent each major academic unit. The number of elected senators varies by academic unit, based on the number of faculty members in the academic unit, and those senators are elected by the faculty. The chair of the Faculty Senate is elected at-large from the tenured faculty to represent the entire faculty. The vice-chair and the recording secretary are elected from among the senators.
Meetings are generally held once a month during the academic year and are posted to the academic calendar. Meetings are open to any interested party. The Faculty Senate oversees a number of standing committees, and much of the governance work occurs within these standing committees. For continuity, the standing committee structure and its membership was simply carried over from 2015, but reorganization of the standing committee structure to align it with the Faculty Senate concept is a high priority for early 2016.
