About the Faculty Senate

At the heart of the collegial governance system at the College of Charleston, the Faculty Senate is the primary legislative body of College faculty. The senate makes recommendations on any matter under its purview to the president of the College. The senate is concerned with all matters relating to academic programs, the curriculum, admissions and continuation standards, the grading system, degree and certificate requirements and the utilization of the intellectual resources of the College. The Faculty Senate is supported by a wide range of standing senate and College committees. Detailed descriptions of the senate and College committees may be found in the Faculty/Administration Manual, Articles IV and V in the Faculty Organization and By-Laws section. Please visit our Contact Us webpage to reach the Speaker of the Faculty, the Faculty Secretary, or the Faculty Secretariat for further information.
