About the University Faculty Senate
The University Faculty Senate (UFS) is the official voice of the
faculty of Shawnee State in the shared governance process of the
university. The UFS, through the work of its standing and ad hoc
committees, recommends courses of action with respect to academic and
educational policies or other related areas of faculty concern so that
the President of the University, the Board of Trustees, and the Ohio
Board of Regents may benefit from the full diversity of faculty
viewpoints and the collective experience, knowledge and judgment of the
faculty of Shawnee State University.
The UFS consists of sixteen Senators elected on staggered, two-year
terms, with representation equally divided between the College of Arts &
Sciences and the College of Professional Studies. UFS officers are
also elected to two-year terms and serve on the UFS Executive Committee.
