WELCOME TO THE COLLEGE SENATE AT BUFFALO STATE COLLEGE
Welcome to the Buffalo State College Senate. The College Senate is the official agency through which the college faculty, support staff, and students engage in the governance of the College.
The mechanism for sharing governance involves eight college standing committees and the Senate, whose members are representatives from each constituency. All College Senate work takes place under the purview of the standing committees, or ad hoc committees designed to address specific issues. Standing committees and ad hoc committees are charged by and report to the Senate.
The Senate, as a legislative body of representatives, is responsible for review of college policy and procedure, and for making recommendations on such matters to the President. In so doing, the Senate serves as the official voice of the college.
All members of the SUNY Buffalo State community are always invited to attend the College Senate Meetings. This is an open forum.
