Faculty Senate

The UMCES Faculty Senate provides faculty with a voice in the deliberation of Center policies, strategies, and administrative decisions that affect the entire UMCES community.

The Senate is the principal forum for ensuring adequate and productive communication between the UMCES faculty, professional staff and UMCES administration. It serves as both an advisory body to the President of UMCES and is the official forum recognized by the University System of Maryland Chancellor and the Board of Regents for the expression of the concerns and interests of UMCES faculty.
