Welcome to the Home of Central Faculty Governance at the University of Michigan
The Faculty Senate Office is the administrative home for Faculty Senate, Senate Assembly, and SACUA. The current structure of Central Faculty Governance has been in place for over fifty years. Through Faculty Senate, Senate Assembly, and the Senate Advisory Committee on University Affairs (SACUA), University faculty members have the opportunity to voice their opinions and concerns about University policy and other matters of University-wide concern.
We want to hear from you
Your input is important to us. If you have questions about Central Faculty Governance, about participating, or if you have questions or concerns about a specific topic, please contact us. The Faculty Senate Office will get back to you within twenty-four business hours.
