Welcome. The Faculty Senate serves as the university-wide representative body for the faculty at Saint Louis University. It provides the foundation for shared governance on matters touching the academic mission of the university as a whole.

Senators serve as representatives of their constituent academic units, but also as university citizens. Thus, the Senate bears a responsibility to employ our best efforts to ensure that, through collaboration, the university honors the trust our students have invested in us. We seek to promote academic excellence, the long-term well-being of Saint Louis University, and our Jesuit heritage with its commitment to social justice.
