Faculty Senate Executive Committee

The Faculty Senate Executive Committee (FSEC) provides leadership for the Senate. The Senate Executive Committee is composed of:

  • Four officers (Chair, Chair-Elect, Past-Chair and Secretary)
  • Five Standing Committee Chairs (Curriculum, Research, Faculty Affairs, Finance, Governance & Operations)
  • Two Senators-at-Large
  • Chair of the Faculty Policies and Procedures Committee (ex-officio)
  • Senate Parliamentarian (ex-officio)

The Senate Executive Committee can make representation in its own name about any matter within the scope of the senate’s responsibilities and functions when, in the committee’s judgment, circumstances require action before it is possible to convene a meeting of the senate.  In such instances, the committee will be guided by its best judgment regarding the intention of the senate.

The Senate Executive Committee serves in an advisory role to senate standing committees.  Senate standing committees should make reports to the Chair of the Senate at least five days prior to the next meeting of the Senate Executive Committee.

The FSEC meets once a month with the UAB President and Provost to discuss the needs and responsibilities of the faculty and to provide advice to the President.
