The faculty of each of the institutions of higher education must by Board policy establish written bylaws, a constitution, and necessary procedures, subject to the approval of the President and the Board, for a faculty governing body which makes recommendations to the President and to the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs as a part of the decision making process of the University. All such policies and procedures must be consistent with the Boardís Rule Manual and Governing Policies and Procedures. To fulfill this function the University Faculty has created the Faculty Senate.
