Faculty Senate

The UTHSC Faculty Senate represents the faculty in the shared governance of the university.

Senators are elected from the various departments. We work as a body and through committees to develop and recommend policies regarding the educational objectives of the campus. 

We consider, advise, and recommend policies and procedures in other matters which concern the general welfare of the faculty:

  • criteria for faculty appointment, dismissal, promotions, tenure, and retirement;
  • criteria for the selection of chief academic officer and other campus administrative officers; 
  • priorities for the university budget
  • priorities for the university development plan
  • changes in physical facilities
  • faculty grievances and recommendations to senior campus administrators

The Faculty Senate President serves on the University Faculty Council, who attend Board of Trustees meetings and advise the system president. The Senate is also represented in the Tennessee University Faculty Senates (TUFS), a statewide body representing faculty across the state.
