The Faculty Senate provides open discussion among its members on matters of concern to the College/student body/faculty and ensures open communication among faculty members and between the faculty and the administration. The objectives of the Faculty Senate are to:

  • Serve as a vehicle for ascertaining faculty attitudes and expressions and for dissemination of these attitudes and expressions to the administration.
  • Maintain through the president of the senate and the senate’s Executive Committee a direct line of communication to the administration.
  • Provide faculty input for the planning and implementation of college programs and facilities.
  • Promote better communication between faculty and administration, between faculty and other faculty, and between faculty and students.   


The membership shall be made up of full-time teaching faculty and staff members who hold academic rank. The Executive Committee and the Senate representatives are elected by the faculty.  Part-time faculty members, also called adjunct faculty, may elect a representative to attend faculty senate meetings.
