The mission of the Faculty Senate at Georgia Southern University is to provide a process for faculty to play an active role in academic governance. The Faculty Senate is essential in guiding the University by initiating, reviewing, evaluating, and recommending policy.
The Faculty Senate, which operates according to the principles of shared governance, serves as the main channel of communication between faculty members and the central administration of the University. The Senate has the responsibility to consider, legislate, and advise on all matters of general University interest, focusing on those related to the academic mission.
