Faculty Senate


Dear Faculty Colleagues,

 Welcome to the University of North Alabama Faculty Senate webpage.

Thank you for your continued commitment and dedication to the success of our students and the University of North Alabama. I am honored to serve as the 2023-2024 Faculty Senate President and look forward to working alongside each of you. I am excited to be working with an outstanding group of faculty with whom I know we can accomplish great things.

As the Faculty Senate, our 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 ensure the continuing development of our educational programs and policies” (Faculty Senate Constitution). Together, the Faculty Senate works alongside Staff Senate, the Student Government Association, and the Administration to achieve the overall mission of UNA.

For Faculty Senate to be an effective part of UNA’s Shared Governance structure, it is important for faculty to be engaged. I would like to encourage each of you to know and communicate with your respective department’s senator(s) and Shared Governance Committee representative. All committee member contact information can be found on the Faculty Senate’s homepage. In addition to contacting your department representative(s), I am available for any questions or concerns you may have. Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time. Here’s to a great year at UNA!

Roar Lions!

Lauren Killen
