The Faculty Senate is the primary governance body for University Faculty, providing governance for issues not covered by the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the University of Cincinnati and the American Association of University Professors (AAUP), Cincinnati Chapter, 2007-2010.  As stated in 27.2.7:

With respect to Faculty priorities in those areas not specifically dealt with through the collective bargaining process, both parties to this Agreement recognize the Faculty Senate as the primary governance body representing the Faculty which shall have the right to advise the President and the Vice Presidents.

For more information, visit the Collective Bargaining Agreement.

Another key source of governance for the University Faculty is in the Faculty Handbooks, which play a key role for faculty governance not represented by American Association of University Professors (AAUP).

At the University of Cincinnati, there is an integrated approach at policy decision-making as laid out by Article 27.1 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement.  For more information on how the decision-making process works, visit Collective Bargaining.
