Faculty Senate

UCM Faculty Senate

The Faculty Senate serves as the representative body of the faculty under the provisions of the Faculty Senate Constitution and by-laws as approved by the Board of Governors.  The Senate may initiate deliberations on these issues provided for in the Constitution or respond to requests for its deliberation.  The resulting Senate motions are forwarded as recommendations to the Provost and President of the University for adoption by the Administration. 

Meeting Information




The Faculty Senate and Faculty Senate Executive Committee hold regularly scheduled meetings throughout the academic year. Here, you will find meeting schedules, agendas and minutes for the Senate and Executive Committee meetings both past and present. The Faculty Senate Office houses information for Faculty Senate and University Administrative committees, advisory committees and ad hoc committees.  Here, you will find their rosters, charges and Procedure and Policy Manuals for those committees. As an organization that follows Robert's Rule of Order, all items decided upon will have a motion associated with them.  Here, you will find links to motions both past and present. In 1980, the Faculty Senate was established which took the place of the Faculty Council.  The Archives page will house the scanned copies of the binders that have been a part of the Faculty Senate office since its inception.  These archives also include information from Faculty Council meetings prior to what is now known as the Faculty Senate.
