University Faculty Senate

The University Faculty Senate is the representative body of Penn State’s faculty with legislative authority on all matters pertaining to the educational interests of the University and all educational matters that concern the faculties of more than one college. In addition, the Senate is recognized by the University as an advisory and consultative body to the President on all matters that may affect the attainment of the University’s educational objectives.

Faculty across the University are encouraged to share any concerns they may have with the Senators representing their unit.

The Senate holds regular meetings in the Kern Graduate Building on the University Park campus. Meetings also are streamed live online (and archived afterward) so anyone who cannot attend meetings in person can still participate.
