The Rice University Faculty Senate

The Faculty Senate is a representative body of the university faculty formed to investigate, discuss, and decide on matters concerning the academic affairs of the university. It was approved for creation on February 28, 2005. The powers and duties of the Senate, the membership of the Senate, Senate elections, and required plenary faculty meetings are specified in the Constitution of the Faculty Senate. The Faculty Senate, ratified by the university faculty in plenary session, replaces the previous Faculty Council form of governance.
