As mandated by the School’s governing body, the Academic Senate is empowered to: determine academic policies; set conditions for admission and the granting of degrees; authorize and supervise courses and curricula; and advise the administration on faculty appointments and promotions. This delegated authority makes the SSM Academic Senate unique among faculty governments.

The Academic Senate provides the organizational framework that enables the faculty to exercise its right to participate in the School’s governance.

TERMS: The founder is elected for lifetime. All other members are elected for 7 years, with a maximum of 2 terms possible.

MEETINGS: The Academic Senate meets twice a year, once before the yearly graduation and a second time in mid-April.
