Senate Membership

Elections for Faculty Senate (as well as Advisory Council and Interinstitutional Faculty Senate) are held each spring term, after an opt-in process for candidates.  Senators are elected for three-year terms (except for interim positions).  Representation is apportioned according to the number of faculty in each of the Senate divisions:  the three divisions of CLAS (Arts & Letters, Sciences, Social Sciences); each of the the other colleges/schools (COTA, CUPA, GSE, MCECS, SBA, SPH, SSW); Other Instructional Faculty; Library; and All Other Faculty.

The Senate Presiding Officer Elect (POE) and Steering Committee members are elected at the June meeting of the PSU Faculty Senate. The POE serves for one year, and then becomes Presiding Officer (PO); the PO serves for one year and then becomes Past Presiding Officer for one year.  Steering Committee members serve two-year terms.  The Chair of the Committee on Committees is elected by the Committee on Committees at their last meeting before the June meeting of the Faculty Senate, and serves for one year. The Secretary to the Faculty is appointed by the President.
