Faculty Senate

Faculty Senate Chair message

Tom DickieFaculty Senate is the representational voice for all 700 plus faculty at Missouri State University. Together the faculty constitute a vast pool of talent and expertise across a multitude of areas. I am honored to serve as Chair. One of the main purposes of Faculty Senate is to focus some of this deep pool of ability and skill into the job of shared governance. Much of our work revolves around curricular issues but Senate also provides a powerful voice for faculty on a variety of issues and concerns.  Much of the work of Senate is done through numerous sub-committees, both standing and ad hoc. All of these meetings are open to faculty, please follow the “Committees” link on your left for a full list of Senate committees and contact information. The Senate meets monthly during the academic year, follow the “Faculty Senate Calendar” link on your left for meeting times and places.
