Faculty Senate

Shepard Hall

The mission of the Faculty Senate of the City College of New York is to serve as the authentic voice of the faculty.  The Faculty Senate operates College-wide in three main areas:1) to advance student learning in all its forms, 2) to promote the interests and well-being of the faculty, and 3) to partner with the College administration in advancing the historic mission of City College.  

The Senate considers a host of College-wide matters including curriculum questions, faculty affairs, allocation of resources, student affairs, College administration, new initiatives, approval of all student degrees, and the relationship between the College and the community. 

61 Senators, who are elected for fixed terms by the many divisions and schools of the College, comprise the Senate. The day-to-day operations of the Senate are managed by a seven-member Executive Committee elected annually by the Senate. The Senate convenes a series of standing committees each year to consider specific areas of interest to the Faculty.

Plenary meetings of the Senate take place on the third Thursday of each month during the academic year.  These meetings are open to the College community. I encourage members of the Faculty, Senators or not, to come and contribute to advancing the teaching and research mission of the College. 


Come to a Town Hall meeting on March 13 at 2 PM in NAC 0/201! 

This special session will consist of a Town Hall meeting to present progress to, and solicit feedback and comments from, the College community on efforts to develop a strategic plan for the College. This session, which is open to Faculty and Staff, represents an important opportunity for you to shape drafting of this important document. The strategic plan, once complete, will set a unified vision for directions and initiatives to be pursued by College in the coming years.
In preparation for the meeting, please read a preliminary report drafted by four Faculty/Staff sub-committees of the Strategic Planning Effort:
I look forward to seeing you on the 13th.
