Indiana State University has a long and proud history of strong faculty governance.
The faculty collectively, and through their elected representatives, are empowered by the Faculty Constitution approved by the Board of Trustees over thirty years ago. This Constitution is based on the principle of shared governance. Thus the document defines the areas of the faculty's primary and advisory authority, as well as the structures and operations of the governing bodies through which this authority is exercised - the Faculty Senate and its standing committees.
This website is an evolving resource designed by faculty for faculty. Its purpose is to provide information on Senate activities to the campus and interested members of the community at large. But especially it is designed to make faculty government accessible to those it serves.
