Standing Academic Committees

As elaborated in Article 4, Florida SouthWestern State College Administration and Faculty support the concept of shared governance.

The faculty are responsible for the teaching, research, and scholarly activities of the College. The faculty share in the governance of the College through the Faculty Senate by recommending policies and procedures related to academic matters, thus creating a culture of collegiality with the Administration to further the educational mission of the College. The faculty role in shared governance is carried out through a cooperative effort with the Administration, the Faculty Senate, and the Union. The Union, through the collective bargaining agreement, sets policies related to terms and conditions of employment. The Faculty Senate, through standing committees, discusses and makes recommendations to the Administration in all academic areas.
