Students at the Library

The Academic Senate is the Faculty equivalent of the Student Senate. Representation on the Academic Senate is important for faculty and student communication. The Academic Senate is a main advisory body regarding academic policy, and it is necessary that students have a voice on these issues.

Budget and Finance Committee

The Budget Committee monitors the process by which allocations are made to budgetary units and reports to the Academic Senate periodically on any significant changes in such allocations and on the criteria for such changes. It keeps itself informed as to the financial operations of the university.
