Seeking CENG Membership for Academic Senate Committees


Academic Senate is currently working to finalize committee membership for the next academic year. The Distinguished Teaching Awards Committee, Diversity Committee and Instruction Committee are all missing representation from the College of Engineering.

The Academic Senate is the faculty governing body of the university representing approximately 1,300 faculty members. It is the principal mechanism for consultative participation by the university community in the administrative decisions of the president.

The Academic Senate formulates and evaluates policy and procedures on academic, fiscal and personnel matters. The work of the senate is accomplished through its several committees (comprised of approximately 130 faculty, administrators and students), which received their charges from the Academic Senate Executive Committee. Recommended action is forwarded to the Academic Senate for deliberation and then to the president for approval and implementation. In addition, the Academic Senate may make recommendations to the Board of Trustees, the Chancellor or the CSU Academic Senate that it judges will benefit the CSU.

Please complete a statement of interest form on the Academic Senate website which can be found here or reach out to Katie Elizabeth Terou at, Brian Kennelly at, or Sarah Best at if you are interested in applying or recommending someone for the committee.
