Faculty Senate serves as the official representative body of the faculty and the link between faculty and administration. The senate reviews and recommends policies and procedures, which are then compiled in the Faculty Manual. For over fifty years, the Faculty Senate has participated in a variety of initiatives to improve the status of the faculty of Clemson University.
A history of the Faculty Senate may be found in "Clemson University Faculty Senate: Over Sixty Years of Service."
Detailed information about the Faculty Senate, including membership and governing documents, as well as official meeting minutes and reports, can be found under Senate Information.
For faculty policies affecting all Clemson Faculty, see Faculty Policies.
