Faculty Senate

About Faculty Senate

The Faculty Senate is a representative organization composed of elected officers and senators from ASU-Beebe's academic divisions.  The officers are President, Vice President, Secretary/Treasurer and Chairman Ex-Officio (immediate Past President of the Faculty Senate).  The Vice President is elected for a two-year term serving as the Vice President the first year and the President the second year.  The Secretary/Treasurer is elected for a two-year term.  Faculty members are eligible to run for these positions and vote on the candidates by being full-time faculty members of ASU - Beebe in accordance with Faculty Senate's Constitution and Bylaws.

Senators are chosen by caucus from within the academic divisions.  Four (4) senators serve per division including a minimum of (1) mandatory senator from the Heber Springs and Searcy campuses, collectively.  Senators are elected to two-year terms.  Faculty members are eligible to run for senator and participate in the electoral caucus by being full-time faculty members of the divisions represented.

The Faculty Senate appoints a full-time faculty member, generally the President, as its Shared Governance Cabinet Representative, with full voting rights of the Council.  It is a one-year appointment.  The Faculty Senate claims general power over the faculty, and advisory and consultative power in conjunction with administrative and staff components of the College in all matters concerning the faculty.
