The Alcorn State University Faculty Senate is a representative body of the university faculty. Besides the officiating members, the Faculty Senate consists of two representative faculty members from each department. Members may be elected at their respective departmental meetings.
The Faculty Senate strives to be a voice for faculty and to represent faculty concerns to the administration. Senators are urged to discuss with their peers, find out their concerns, and bring those concerns to the Senate meeting, where the issues will receive a full hearing and discussion.
The Faculty Senate meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month during the Spring and Fall semesters. Elections for offices in the Senate are held every three years. Faculty members are welcome to attend all Senate meetings.
