About the Senate

About the IUP Senate

  • The University Senate serves as the academic governing body for IUP.
  • The Senate provides the forum where issues related to the welfare of the university as a whole are discussed and debated with all stakeholders participating.
  • Senators are primarily elected and come from all areas of the campus community—faculty, administrators, students, staff, and alumni.
  • Meetings of the whole Senate take place each month, September through April.
  • Committees meet as often as weekly to handle much of the work of the Senate. (For a chart showing committee responsibilities, see Senate Committee Responsibilities.)
