To be eligible to serve as a member of the Academic Senate, nominees must have been employed as tenured/tenure-track faculty members at the University with one full academic term prior to their election. A member of the faculty who has an administrative appointment, other than as a department chairperson or head, is not eligible for election to the Academic Senate.

The term of service for each faculty representative is three years unless otherwise noted. The Academic Senate meets on Wednesday evenings.
