University Governance - How do I get involved

How do I get involved?

Shared Governance affects all—including the administration, faculty, staff, and students. Issues ranging from compensation and classification, to input on leadership searches, to benefit changes are discussed and debated within the shared governance system.

  • Talk with your department chair or a member of the committee, council, or senate about ways you might serve and to discuss your interest and service opportunities.
  • Run for seat or volunteer and be a voice; vacancy announcements, nomination periods, and elections usually occur in February, March, and April.
  • Check meeting times and attend a meeting to watch shared governance in action.
  • Submit an idea or proposal for consideration.
