Faculty Senate


The Western Kentucky Faculty Senate is devoted to furthering the university's mission by providing a forum for faculty deliberation and contribution to shared governance.

The Faculty Senate is the agency for the articulation and presentation of the views of the faculty. While departments, colleges, schools, and programs are empowered to make decisions in many areas, the need remains for consultation and cooperation on academic and professional matters that pertain to the university as a whole. Hence, the Faculty Senate shall function as the official representative voice of the faculty, advising and making recommendations to the President and Provost/Vice President for Academic Affairs concerning academic requirements and policies, faculty responsibilities and welfare, and any other matters of importance to the faculty.

Senate meetings are held monthly in the Faculty House.

The Senate Charter has information about membership, committees, and procedures.
