Every constituent has representation through at least one departmental senator and one or more at-large senators for their category (full-time faculty, part-time faculty, chairs category, or staff who teach). Large departments have one additional senator. In addition to voting senators, there are non-voting members of the Senate selected by the President, Provost’s Council, and student government.

Senators and alternates are elected every three years according to procedures described in Bylaws III.B.i and VI.A. Vacancies are filled according to procedures in Bylaw VI.B.i.

Senators are responsible for:

  • soliciting the opinions of their constituents on matters affecting education and governance;
  • informing their constituents of significant events, dates, and deadlines announced by the Senate, and of its actions;
  • attending Senate meetings at which they have a vote or, if unable to attend, request that their alternate(s) attend; and
  • serving routinely on Senate committees.
