University Senate

The University Senate is where SDSU's major constituencies weigh in on an array of policy decisions. Senate members represent all areas of campus life and thus focus on issues that affect the University's general welfare---from curriculum to facilities, and from admissions to administrator reviews. The Senate typically meets the first Tuesday of the month (Fall: September thru December; Spring: February thru May). We encourage faculty, staff, and students to take an active role in policy-making. Contact the Senate Office or Chair of Committee on Committees and Elections David Marx if you're interested in serving on any of the many Senate Committees, Councils or Boards. Senate Leadership welcomes requests for information or support. Examples of how our help button can be used:

  • report a proxy (Senators)
  • report an issue with the Policy File
  • report updates to Committee membership and details
  • ask a question
