The Arts & Sciences Faculty Senate (ASFS), a major part of the shared governance structure of the College of Arts & Sciences, is the primary representative body for the faculty of the College. The ASFS meets regularly as a group, usually with the Dean, to consider matters of College policy and to provide counsel and advice to the Dean and other administrators. The ASFS also oversees seven standing committees comprised of both ASFS representatives and College faculty. These committees cover areas essential to the governance and functioning of the College: Budget, Curriculum, Diversity, Grievance, Online Education, Personnel and Planning. The chairs of each committee, in conjunction with the chair of ASFS and two representatives from each divisional council, form the Council’s Executive Committee. Elected representatives, committee members, bylaws, motions and minutes of ASFS meetings may be found by following the tabs at right of this page.
