Faculty Senate

Welcome to the Faculty Senate Webpage!

This website is dedicated to providing information on all things Senate. On these pages you will find the Who, What, Where, When and Why that you need to know regarding the Faculty Senate and how we function and serve at SFA.

Who are the Faculty Senators? Senators are volunteer, elected faculty who represent each college proportionally. According to the Senate Constitution, representation from each college is determined by allotting one representative for every four percent of the voting faculty in each respective college. Faculty from each college represent their constituents across campus to advocate for the best interests of university faculty here at SFA.

What does the Senate do? Since it’s creation in 1970, the SFA Faculty Senate has worked diligently to serve the faculty through representation, active leadership in working toward common goals, and in pursuing the ideal of shared governance at SFA. Through Senate committees, meaningful work is planned and carried out to increasingly move SFA in a positive direction to create the best working and learning environment possible.

Where and When does Senate meet? The Faculty Senate meets once every month during the academic school year. We encourage you to view our meeting dates for information regarding times and locations. All meetings are open to the public, and faculty are invited and encouraged to attend.

Why does Faculty Senate exist? The Faculty Senate is intended to be a voice to represent all faculty. In order for the Senate to represent and advocate for its constituents, we welcome you to contact your representatives with any issues, concerns, comments, questions, or ideas. You will find contact information for each Senator listed on the Senate roster, or you can send a message to the Senate Chair through the contact page of this website.

Thank you for visiting this site! Please let the Senate know what we can do to serve you.


Warm Regards,
Jannah Nerren | Faculty Senate Chair, 2014
