Penn State Home Page.


This page offers resources for all members of the faculty. The majority of these links are related to Senate responsibilities, but some are included here because we believe faculty members may find them useful or interesting. In addition, information about Senate committees, agendas, minutes, reports, and other topics internal to the Senate may be found on the About the Senate page. The Recent Senate Activity section lists special committee charges, schedule for officers visits to campuses and colleges, and similar information.

Many issues that the Senate takes up originate with communications from indivdual faculty members who have deep concerns about particular issues. We cannot resolve every concern. However, the Senate can be effective for raising issues that need attention.

If you have issues or questions, communicate them to a Senate officer or a college or campus Senator. (See Senate
