Faculty Senate


Martin Tawil

These are just some of Faculty Senate's achievements since 2013. The Senate has been an active member of shared governance at FSW in collaboration with the current administration. I have worked with my fellow committee members to build and open channels of communications at all levels of the FSW administration, but especially focusing on a successful relationship with the Provost which allowed us to meet many of our goals. As Faculty Senate President, I believe in strong values and transparency. I have enjoyed working with the diverse minds and the many-faceted perspectives of not just my fellow committee members, but the faculty body as a whole. And while we have made great strides, there is still work that needs to be done.
