Welcome to the homepage of the SJSU Academic Senate. The SJSU Academic Senate is the principal agency for the formulation of University policy. The Senate and its committees communicate recommendations to the President on such matters as faculty affairs, curriculum, instruction, student affairs, finances and other matters relevant to the welfare of SJSU. San José State University was the first California state university to have an official faculty representative body.
We hope that this site will serve as a resource to members of the SJSU community who are interested in learning about policies passed by the Senate, the members of the Senate, and the operation of the Senate and its committees.
The next Senate meeting is March 10, 2014, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. in Engr. 285/287. Click here for meeting materials as they become available.
The Academic Senate is conducting elections in the College of Engineering, Education, Social Sciences and the General Unit. Please click on the college above to be taken to the ballot to vote. All faculty in a particular college may vote for representatives from the college to the Senate. Ballots must be submitted by COB on Friday, March 21, 2014.
