Faculty Senate

The Faculty Senate is the recognized voice of the faculty at Salisbury University. The Faculty Senate represents all faculty through the process of shared governance. The Senate seeks ways to improve communication and collaborative decision making between all levels of the University. In addition, the Senate acts as an advisory and consultative body to the President on all matters that may affect the attainment of the University's educational objectives and goals.
