WELCOME TO THE COLLEGE SENATE HOME PAGE
SUNY Buffalo State is committed to shared governance via the College Senate. The Senate is a formal partnership between the administration and the constituencies of faculty, professional staff, support staff, and students. The Senate conducts business as defined by its By-Laws.
The mechanism for sharing governance involves eight college standing committees and the Senate, whose members are representatives from each constituency. All College Senate work takes place under the purview of the standing committees, or ad hoc committees designed to address specific issues. Standing committees and ad hoc committees are charged by and report to the Senate.
The Senate, as a legislative body of representatives, is responsible for review of college policy and procedure, and for making recommendations on such matters to the President. In so doing, the Senate serves as the official voice of the college.
- All members of the SUNY Buffalo State community are always invited to attend the College Senate Meetings.
This is an open forum.
