The 22 member elected Senate represents faculty from all ranks and divisions within the Faculty of Arts and Science at Yale. 2015-2016 marks the Senate’s inaugural year as the chief representative and voice for the Yale FAS. While many universities have maintained faculty senates for many decades, the FAS Senate is a new contribution to faculty governance at Yale. The Senate was created in order to provide a more organized voice for the FAS faculty, to highlight and investigate issues of FAS concern, and to foster greater communication between the members of the FAS and the Yale administration.

The 2013 and 2014 ad hoc committee reports recommending and establishing the FAS Senate are available below.”
