Role of Faculty Senate - Chapter 2, Section 2.1.1 of the Faculty Handbook:
"....The faculty role in campus-wide governance is organized and effected by the Faculty Senate, a broadly representative body which is specifically charged by the Board of Trustees to consider, advise and recommend to the administration policies about a wide range of concerns affecting the welfare of the campus. Among these concerns are criteria for faculty appointment, dismissal, promotion, tenure and retirement; criteria for the selection of the chancellor, vice-chancellors and other campus administrative officers; criteria for the selection of the president and other statewide executive officers of the University (in conjunction with other Faculty Senates or corresponding bodies of the other campuses of The University of Tennessee); priorities for long-range academic planning; planning academic physical facilities; and policies regarding student life, rights and responsibilities."
