General Meetings

General Faculty Senate meetings are once a month, using a representational model per department/unit. All meetings are open, and any request to be on the agenda should be directed to the Faculty Senate Chair or through the Action Request Form.

Meetings are moderated using an abridged version of FS Roberts Rules of Order.There are also FS Meeting Expectations for Senators, Representative Attendees (i.e., Designated Proxies, FS Committee Chairs, UHPA Directors, etc.), and Guests (any one from our campus community not scheduled on the General Meeting agenda).

All voting held in the Senate are done on-line and a permanent record is kept.

Meeting agendas and minutes can be found on this page prior to the general meeting.
