What is the Faculty Senate?  The Faculty Senate represents UAB’s faculty in matters of shared governance.  The Senate is made up of faculty representatives from all of UAB’s academic units, as well as four officers elected at large by the faculty.  Through our participation in various councils and committees, we convey the faculty’s views and concerns in matters that affect our University.  Please take some time to learn more about the Faculty Senate by reading its Constitution, Bylaws, and Appendices, as well as learning about the work of the Senate by reviewing its minutes. You can also peruse our informational brochure.

Participate: Also, please consider participating in the Faculty Senate by becoming a candidate to represent your academic unit or running for one of the officer positions (link to Senate Nomination and Voting page).  Those of us who serve in the Senate find it a rewarding and enlightening experience, as well as an opportunity to learn more about UAB.  Please remember that shared governance does not work unless we participate in it.

To access the Faculty Senate events, calendar, Senator roster, meeting agendas, meeting minutes, presentations and reports... please visit the "Senate / Events" page.

Tell us your concerns:  If you have questions or matters that you think the Senate should look into, we would like to hear about them.  Please take a moment and send us a message through our Feedback link.
