Faculty Senate Membership: Senators & Officers

The Faculty Senate consists of 32 faculty members: 28 senators and four officers. Nine senators from basic science departments, nine senators from clinical departments, and two senators from faculty not billeted to USU represent the School of Medicine (SOM). Three senators represent the Graduate School of Nursing (GSN), three senators represent the Postgraduate Dental College (PDC), and two senators represent the College of Allied Health Sciences (CAHS). Senators serve three-year terms and are expected to represent the common good of the university rather than individual constituencies. The senate officers are the President, the immediate Past-President, the President-Elect, and the Secretary-Treasurer. Each presidential officer serves a one-year term. A new President-Elect is chosen each year, and after serving in that capacity for one year, becomes the Senate President. Following that, a one-year term as immediate Past-President is served. Thus, it is a three year commitment. Beginning with the 2015 election, the Secretary-Treasurer will serve a two-year term. Senate elections are held each May, and terms of office begin in July.
