Faculty Senate 2023-2024
Zoom Meeting ID: 913 2600 8306
Faculty Senate meetings are scheduled monthly from 3:00 – 5:00 PM during the academic year (typically the third Thursday, unless otherwise noted). Sponsored receptions typically follow the meetings. These are a great opportunity to build collegial relationships and network with colleagues from other disciplines. Special Meetings may be called upon due notice. Faculty Senate meetings will be held in person in the Hope Room of the Higgins Welcome Center on Upper College Road for the Fall Semester, 2023. A remote option will also be provided. In September, December, and April the General Faculty-Graduate Faculty meetings directly precede the Faculty Senate meeting.
Faculty Senators and the URI community receive an invitation with agenda at least 72 hours in advance of a meeting. In addition, meeting agendas and minutes may be accessed through links on the Meeting Schedule below. Senate meetings are open to all members of the University Community and the general public. Non-senate members may address the Senate upon invitation of the Faculty Senate President. A Permission to Speak form is available here.
The Senate uses the American Institute of Parliamentarians Standard Code of Parliamentary Procedure. Senators may request a copy of the Code from the Faculty Senate Office, or click on this link for a brief motions guide.
