​Academic Senate Charge

The Academic Senate's primary responsibility is for making recommendations in the areas of curriculum and academic standards at the College.

The Academic Senate is the representative body for Southwest faculty consisting primarily of elected representatives.

As the official voice of the faculty in matters of campus-wide concern, Southwest's Academic Senate provides the means for faculty to participate in the shared governance of the college. It strives to further the academic mission and integrity of the college as a community of scholars and professionals dedicated to providing an environment for quality learning. The Senate acts as a whole, or in committees and task forces, to address a wide range of academic, professional and administrative issues. These include the primary concerns of representing the faculty of Southwest in all academic and professional matters and seeking to support the mission, vision, and values of Southwest.
