Welcome to the Home Page for the Faculty Senate at the University of New Hampshire!
We are an elected body of faculty representatives from each academic department at UNH. The Faculty Senate is the legislative body that reviews and develops policies concerned with the academic mission of the University.
Here is a link to the Committee on Calendar Options fact-finding report on alternative calendar options to the current UNH two-semester system. Christine Shea presented her committee's report at the May 2, 2016 Faculty Senate meeting. Find those minutes in the menus to the left on this website.
Here is a link to the Discovery Review Committee Report, being discussed in the senate on April 25 and May 2, 2016.
Here are three documents shared with the senate on November 23, 2015, by Jaime Nolan and Donna Marie Sorrentino during a discussion of Title IX and reporting incidents of sexual violence and harrassment in the UNH community. The first is a quick guide for faculty and staff, the second is a more detailed guide for faculty and staff, and the third is a student's guide.
In the spring of 2015, the Curran Consulting Group conducted more than 50 stakeholder interviews and compiled its findings and recommendations in a report on professional success and career preparation, which was released to the university community on June 10, 2015. The executive summary of the report can be found here. The entire report is located on Blackboard as a module in the UNH>My UNH area, center column, fourth item down, or you can access it through this link.
