Faculty Senate

Faculty Senate

AURAK’s Faculty Senate convened for the first time in September 2015. A representative body benefitting from the collective wisdom of faculty, the Senate provides a forum through which faculty may share in the governance of AURAK. It deliberates issues and policies and sends its recommendations to the Provost for further consideration. If deemed necessary, it can also advocate on behalf of faculty. In brief, the Senate plays a vital role as the point of contact between all faculty and AURAK’s upper administration.
