The next meeting of the University Faculty Senate will be held on Tuesday, August 30, 2011 at 1:30 p.m. in Room 112 Kern Graduate Building.

All members of the Faculty Senate are asked to sit in their assigned seats for each Senate meeting.  The assignment of seats is made to enable the Senate Chair to distinguish members from visitors and to be able to recognize members appropriately.  Senators are reminded to wait for the microphone and identify themselves and their voting unit before speaking on the floor.  Members of the University community, who are not senators, may not speak at a Senate meeting unless they request the privilege of the floor from the Senate Chair in advance of the meeting.
