Faculty Senate

About Us

  The primary duty of the Faculty Senate is to consider and, if necessary, act on matters referred to it by the President, the faculty, or any member of the faculty. In addition to initiating actions on these referred matters, the Senate will consider and act on other pertinent matters relating to the missions and operations of the University. Every action taken on matters of the University shall be reported to the faculty by the chairperson in a timely manner, but no later than at its next regular meeting.

A Message from the Chair


Sally Moomaw
Chair, University Faculty

The University of Cincinnati has a strong history and commitment to shared governance, as evidenced by the University’s Integrated Decision-Making Process. The Faculty Senate is the primary governance body representing the University Faculty, and pursuant to rule 3361:50-3-01 of the Administrative Code, considers matters affecting the University and provides aid, advice, and counsel to the President, Vice Presidents, and Board of Trustees. Faculty Senate also works with both undergraduate and graduate student governance bodies on policy issues. There are many opportunities for faculty to become involved with Senate through Faculty and All-University Committees. The Faculty Senate web-site is designed to keep faculty informed of our activities and upcoming events. Faculty participation is highly valued. I look forward to meeting and working with you through the coming year.
