Faculty Senate

2020–21 Faculty Senate Chair message

Dr Cameron WickhamWelcome to the Missouri State University Faculty Senate webpage.  I am honored to be chair for the 2020-2021 year. The Faculty Senate is the body through which faculty exercise shared government of the university. In this role, the Senate makes recommendations to the administration concerning general policy matters affecting the University, especially those in which faculty consider themselves stakeholders. One of the specific responsibilities of the Faculty Senate is to recommend and implement educational policy, particularly in areas of curriculum and degree requirements. Much of this work takes place in the various Senate committees and councils; please follow the “Committees” link on your left for a full list of Senate committees and contact information.


The Senate consists of elected voting representatives of faculty from departments and ranks. The non-voting members of the Senate representatives from the Staff Senate and SGA. The Senate meets monthly during the academic year; due to COVID-19 the meetings will take place via Zoom.  Follow the “Faculty Senate Calendar” link on your left for meeting times and Zoom links. These meetings, as well as committee and council meetings, are open to the faculty.
