A Message from the Chair


Tracy Herrmann
Chair, University Faculty

The University of Cincinnati has a strong commitment to Shared Governance, as evidenced by the University‚Äôs Integrated Decision Making Process. Under this process, Faculty Senate is linked to the chief academic officer, the Provost. 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 makes available to the president and the Board of Trustees its aid, advice, and counsel. Faculty Senate also works with both the undergraduate and graduate student governance bodies on policy issues. The Faculty Senate web-site is designed to keep faculty informed of our activities. We hope you will find the site useful and informative.  I look forward to working with you and continuing the important work of shared governance here at UC.
