Who We Are
Faculty Senate is the primary means through which faculty participate in the shared governance process at UWG. Through its various committees, faculty senators and representatives from all Colleges, Tanner Health System School of Nursing, and Ingram Library advise the administration on issues of concern. Additionally, Faculty Senate is an avenue through which various departments and divisions of the University communicate with the faculty. Faculty Senate has particular purview over topics related to academics but is also a vehicle for faculty input to administrators in all divisions.
In many cases the Senate also appoints its own representatives to other campus-wide committees in order to ensure that appropriate channels of communication are in place. Rosters of Senate committee members are available on this site, as is a list of Senate liaisons to other campus-wide committees. All faculty are encouraged to contact their representatives, senators, or any member of the Executive Committee with issues that they would like to see addressed.
