The Faculty Senate is the primary vehicle of faculty governance at UNC Pembroke. The Faculty Senate is an organization of faculty members who have been elected by the Faculty at large, or by the Faculty of one of five divisions: Arts, Education, Letters, Natural Science and Mathematics, and Social and Behavioral Sciences. The Senate is organized into three standing committees. These are the Faculty and Institutional Affairs Committee, the Student Affairs Committee, and the Academic Affairs Committee. Each committee also has subcommittees. Membership on the subcommittees is not limited to members of the Senate, but is open to all faculty members. The Faculty, through the Senate, is involved in the governance of the total University and is the principal academic policy‑making body of the University.
