Faculty Senate

The faculty of the University, by virtue of their particular competence and the principle of collegiality, are essential participants in the development and implementation of academic policy. The Faculty Senate is a representative body of the faculty, deriving its authority from the Instructional faculty. The Faculty Senate comprises fifteen representatives from each of the three colleges of Christopher Newport University. Senators serve as a liaison between all departments and standing university committees and the administration of the University. The Senate represents the faculty in the consideration of university policies that impact the academic environment and affect the welfare of our University. The Senate meets regularly with the Deans, Provost, and President to discuss issues of the University and to present the viewpoints and perspectives of the faculty to senior members of the University's leadership team.
