Faculty Senate

Welcome to the Boise State University Faculty Senate website. The Faculty Senate is a representative body that is responsible for faculty participation in University planning and governance.

President’s Welcome

Welcome to a new year. We are experiencing a set of scenarios that none of us expected, and we were not entirely prepared to navigate. I believe, as the Faculty Senate President, that all of us together can collaborate, using our skills, experiences, and expertise, to rise to the challenges of this coming year. With all of us learning from one another, we will acquire more skills. We will all be growing together and learning about topics we never expected to learn. I hope you all will join me in embracing this challenge. Together we can do so much.

I encourage you to engage in shared governance through our Faculty Senate. We all observe ways to improve the way the Academy functions and we need you to speak up! The Senate is the place to share your ideas, observations, opinions, and suggestions. The Senate provides an open forum for faculty members to voice their concerns and suggestions and also access administrators that can respond directly to those issues. I look forward to hearing your voice this year. Let’s get to work!
