Faculty Senate

The UT Martin Faculty Senate represents faculty in the shared governance of the University of Tennessee at Martin.  For example, the board has delegated to the UT Faculty Senates the authority, subject to the approval of the chancellor(s), the president, and the board itself, to determine general educational objectives and policies at UT and regulations related to those objectives, such as requirements for admission, retention, readmission, graduation, and honors for all degree and certificate programs.


The Faculty Senate’s committees present faculty views to the administration on budget priorities, faculty salary levels and raises, and broader budgetary matters that affect the educational function of the institution; represent the senate in meetings with the administration and other groups, including UT System administrators, members of higher education agencies or the state legislature; and provide faculty counsel in long-range strategic planning and assessment.
