Governance

Faculty Senate


The Faculty Senate supports the success of faculty and students through its central role in the shared governance process. It speaks on behalf of the faculty in regards to faculty independence, promotion, tenure, and retention; requirements for awarding undergraduate and graduate degrees; and reviews of academic departments and programs. It also supports and makes recommendations regarding the establishment of policies for the research, scholarship, and creative activities that are the cornerstone of a strong university.

Visit the UMBC Leadership website for more information about Governance at UMBC, including additional committee memberships.
