The Faculty Senate is the legislative body of the University of Florida providing a forum for the mutual exchange of ideas between senior officers and faculty. In this capacity, the Senate may legislate with respect to matters that concern more than one college, school, or other major academic unit, or that are otherwise of general university interest. Elected members are apportioned among the academic units in proportion to the number of faculty members in each unit.

Thank you to Drs. Berkow, Doré, and Giordano for representing our department as well as the College of Medicine.
