About the Faculty Senate of Mercy College
The Faculty Senate is an elected representative body for shared governance, with one senator apportioned for every 13 full-time core faculty members in each of the Schools (including the Library). In addition, there are four Senators elected at-large by the entire full-time core faculty body.
Shared governance gives faculty a voice in the decisions regarding academic management and operation of the College.
The Faculty Senate is empowered to form and charge standing and ad hoc Committees of the Faculty. The Senate, through its Committee on Committees, oversees faculty elections and appointments to fill faculty seats on these committees, as well as those charged by the President of the College.
