Mission of the Faculty Senate
1.1 To fulfill its mission effectively, the University needs a mechanism for meaningful and continuing cooperation between the faculty and administrative officers of the institution in shared governance. In order to foster mutual trust and respect and to produce cooperative efforts that enhance the stature of the university and its programs, formal and systematic lines of communication are needed to ensure full discussion of important matters and adequate reaction from one constituency to another.
1.2. Final authority for implementing the policies of the institution resides with
the University president. It is a basic premise of this document that the faculty
has the right and obligation to participate fully and actively in the determination
of those policies that pertain to academic matters and faculty welfare. The Faculty Senate herein constituted provides, therefore, for meaningful and formal
participation by the faculty in matters of University governance that are related
to its right and proper concerns.
