The University of Mississippi Medical Center Faculty Senate is a committee consisting of nominated and elected members drawn from the pool of faculty at the University of Mississippi 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 and its faculty. To accomplish these goals, the Faculty Senate has the power to act in an advisory capacity to the administration on policies affecting UMMC, 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.
