Faculty, Staff and Student Government

Faculty governance structures directly involve academic leaders in all aspects of University management, including student recruitment, selection, monitoring, evaluation and curriculum development, and faculty recruitment and performance monitoring. Policy recommendations often originate from faculty committees or student representatives.

University staff members are represented by an elected Staff Council, a body that has both campus and systemwide officers.

At each campus, students are represented by a Student Government Association, a self-governing body that enhances student welfare, student life and educational quality. Via a systemwide University Student Government Association, students are actively involved in a wide variety of University governance issues
