HFU Faculty Senate

The purpose of the Faculty Senate

The Faculty Senate was established on April 23, 1970. The Faculty Senate is the official faculty governing body of Holy Family University. The Faculty Senate is the voice of the faculty at Holy Family University and acts as the medium through which faculty discuss academic matters and make recommendations to the administration. Additionally, the Faculty Senate serves to promote professional development, faculty welfare, high academic standards, and fostering student welfare.
