Faculty Senate

The voting members of the Faculty Senate is composed of faculty representatives from each college at the University, the At-Large Faculty Representatives on the Steering Committee, and the individuals who sit as Chairpersons of the University-level Standing Committees. In addition, the President, the Provost, one elected member of ASMSU, one elected member of COGS, the Athletic Council Chairperson, a representative of the faculty emeriti and the Secretary of Academic Governance are ex-officio with voice only.

The Faculty Senate is a deliberative, representative, and legislative body for Michigan State University faculty. As such, the Faculty Senate is the major, regularly meeting body in which curricular issues, faculty tenure and promotion issues, and faculty salary and benefits issues are presented. The Faculty Senate’s roles include communicating its position to the administration making recommendations, provide advice, and speak for University faculty on proposals developed in the University-level Standing Committees. The Faculty Senate seeks broad faculty input on major initiatives before the University community.
