UCSB Academic Senate

The Academic Senate is the voice of the faculty in the University of California.

The Senate enables the faculty, through the principle of shared governance, to exercise its right to participate in the University's decisions. We operate with a high level of consultation, trust, and mutual respect, maintaining a tradition of collegial collaboration between the faculty and the university’s administrators. The process requires broad faculty involvement in all of the Senate's councils and committees
