About the UCF Faculty Senate

The UCF Faculty Senate is the basic legislative body of the University. It is the primary voice of the faculty and serves as the main channel of communication between faculty members and administration. It is an advisory body to the president and provost and, as such, participates in shared governance. Its committees provide academic oversight by reviewing and approving policies, new courses, course changes, new programs and program revisions. Senate leaders meet informally on a regular basis with the provost and other members of the administration, to discuss issues and find informal solutions when appropriate. The UCF Faculty Senate may also pass formal resolutions to express a stand on issues or call for action. Examples of recent resolutions which have contributed toward improvements in faculty life at UCF include the implementation of a faculty workplace satisfaction survey and a promotion ladder for instructors and lecturers.

Faculty Constitution and Bylaws

Within the legal structure of the University of Central Florida and in cognizance of the reality that the university can only function properly when goodwill is nurtured and maintained by the president, administrators, and faculty, the UCF Faculty Constitution establishes the means for faculty participation in the governance of the University of Central Florida.

On June 11, 2020, the Faculty Senate adopted a Statement Against Racism.

The UCF Board of Trustees' Educational Programs Committee has commended the UCF faculty for its response to the COVID-19 emergency.
