Faculty Senate


I am honored and excited to serve as the Faculty Senate President this 2019-2020 academic year and I am looking forward to working with this stellar group of senators to make UNA a better place.  UNA is extraordinary and I am thankful to have the opportunity to be a part of this awesome higher education institution.

Faculty Senate works with Staff Senate, the Student Government Association, and Administration to “achieve the common vision of the mission of the institution” (Shared Governance document).  The Faculty Senate’s charge is “to promote the growth and improvement of higher education at the University of North Alabama and in the State of Alabama; to facilitate communication and cooperation among administrative and faculty personnel; and to insure the continuing development of our educational programs and policies” (Faculty Senate constitution).  To that end, I am grateful to be a part of Faculty Senate this coming year and I look forward to the work ahead. 

Please contact me if I can be of service in any way.  In addition, contact your department’s faculty senator(s) who can be found on this webpage.  They are serving as your voice in Faculty Senate and want to hear from you!
