The LSU Faculty Senate

Our Mission

The Faculty Senate is the representative governing body of the Faculty Council. It voices policies, opinions, and sentiments of the Council on any matter within its jurisdiction, as indicated by the LSU Board of Supervisors or otherwise. The Faculty Senate may suggest action, inquiries or recommendations to the LSU President and/or the Executive Vice-President & Provost on any aspect of University life such as:

  • Academic Freedom
  • Policies and procedures affecting faculty appointments
  • Buildings, equipment and facilities
  • Students and student affairs
  • Procedures for academic administrators of LSU 
  • University's role, scope, mission, organization, budget and planning

We’ll need to work together on and off our campus to effectively address issues of significance to faculty in the LSU system and statewide.
