University Senate Meeting

Eberly Auditorium

University 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.

Hate has no place in our community, and we do not condone incidents of discrimination or racist messages. We need all constructive voices working together to make IUP a place where we actively continue to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion. 

We hope to see you for this important discussion. If you cannot attend, you can submit comments and ideas  to social-equity@iup.edu
