Chairpersoned by the President, the University Senate is the chief deliberative body of the University for the discussion of all matters of University policy and practice in cases in which two or more schools have a substantial interest. For example, the Senate is empowered to set each year's academic calendar and discuss certain University-wide policies.

The Senate's membership consists of members of the Tenured/Tenure Track Faculty Senators Council; Full-Time Continuing Contract Faculty Senators Council; Deans Council; Student Senators Council; senators elected by the Administrative Management Council; and designated officers of the University.
