The Senate appoints members of the University Committee on Rank and Tenure, the Grievance Code Committee, the Faculty Responsibilities Committee, the University Budget Committee, and many other committees across the University

According to the Faculty Senate Constitution, in the Faculty Handbook, “The Senate shall have authority to discuss and express its views on any matter of general University interest, and to make recommendations to the President and Board of Directors, and to the University faculty.” This includes making recommendations concerning “The University’s budget, financial status, and financial policies, informed by examination of the University’s financial statements and plans.” The Senate discharges this function through the Senate University Budget Committee, a standing committee of the Senate appointed by the Senate Steering Committee.
