Office of the Faculty Senate

  • Horseshoe on USC campus
  • Faculty Governance at UofSC

    Prior to 1970, the faculty governed as a whole in large meetings chaired by the president of the university. The plan to form a Faculty Senate was adopted in 1970 by the faculty, almost unanimously.

The Faculty Senate is a governing body established by the Board of Trustees. Faculty members are selected by each college or school.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
