East Carolina University
Faculty Senate


East Carolina University maintains a strong, long-standing shared governance structure. The Faculty Senate has been the legislative, advisory and primary faculty governance body for faculty representation at East Carolina University for over 50 years. This body provides the means by which faculty are able to fulfill their responsibilities with respect to academic and educational policies of East Carolina University. 


Please feel free to stop by the Faculty Senate office, located at 140 Rawl Annex (across from the Wright Student Store) anytime and/or contact an elected Faculty Officer with any questions or concerns that you may have.


There will be an open forum on the Chancellor Search immediately following the Faculty Senate meeting on Tuesday, December 1, 2015 from 4:00-5:30 pm in the Mendenhall Student Center Great Rooms. All faculty are encouraged to attend!


Two open forums on the Faculty Salary Equity Study
are scheduled for Tuesday, December 8, 2015 in
1220 Jenkins Fine Arts Bldg. (10-11 am & 1:30-2:30 pm).
The report due in November will include analysis of faculty salary data
from east campus. In the Spring, a separate report will follow with an analysis

for west campus, and we will follow a comparable process for sharing those

results. In addition to these forums, representatives of the Equity Study task

 force will meet with relevant University committees and other constituents

during December and January.
A report then will be made to the full Faculty Senate on
Tuesday, January 26, 2016 (2:10 pm at Heart Institute, West campus).
