Faculty Senate

The UMMC Faculty Senate is a committee consisting of nominated and elected members drawn from the pool of faculty at the University Medical Center. The Faculty Senate exists such that the faculty shall assume its proper share of the responsibility for making academic decisions, for the protection of academic freedoms within a framework of due process and for the general advancement of UMMC. To accomplish these goals, the Faculty Senate has the power to act in an advisory capacity to the administration on policies affecting the Medical Center, to make the general faculty aware of ongoing activities and projects currently being discussed by the Senate and to keep the general faculty informed of its recommendations.


Meetings are open to all faculty members. The Faculty Senate meets from 1-2 p.m. on the third Friday of each month in the School of Dentistry, room D505.
