The leadership of the University Faculty Senate (UFS) generally sets the tone for the entire organization. Collectively they analyze important University-wide issues related to shared governance, academic and administrative policy, curriculum development, the budget, faculty research, academic freedom, tenure, relations with higher administration, libraries and information technology, and administrative searches.

Questions related to these – and many other – issues are then shared with the appropriate UFS subcommittee for further analysis.

The Executive Committee is nine elected Senate members that provide organizational leadership and direction. Led by a Chair and a Vice Chair, who are each elected for a two-year term. The remaining seven members-at-large are elected for a one-year term.

The University Faculty Senate members are elected by their faculty colleagues to represent the college in university-wide deliberations.  Senators are elected for a three-year term and Alternate Senators for a one-year term.

The basic philosophic principle of this Charter is that The City University, composed of autonomous constituent units under the jurisdiction of the Board of Trustees, is a “self­ governing community of scholars” in which faculty, administration, and students all have legitimate and meaningful roles to play in the achievement of their common goals.
