About Faculty Senate

Welcome to the University of Houston Faculty Senate Website!

The faculty senate is an elected body of 134 faculty senators who represent the over 2000 tenured, tenure-track and non-tenure track faculty of the University of Houston. A primary function of the faculty senate is to participate in shared governance, which is basically a collective commitment of the faculty and administration at the University of Houston to work together, towards accomplishing the university’s primary goals of excellence in teaching and research. We can all take pride in the fact that shared governance works exceedingly well here at UH!
