Faculty Senate



Greetings Faculty Colleagues,

Welcome to the University of North Alabama Faculty Senate webpage.

I am honored to serve as the Faculty Senate President for the 2022-2023 academic year. First, I would like to thank each of you for your strong commitment to the success of our students and the University of North Alabama.  I appreciate all of the hard work you do for UNA.

Faculty Senate works with Staff Senate, the Student Government Association, and Administration to “achieve the common vision of the mission of the institution” (Shared Governance document).  The Faculty Senate’s charge is “to promote the growth and improvement of higher education at the University of North Alabama and in the State of Alabama; to facilitate communication and cooperation among administrative and faculty personnel; and to ensure the continuing development of our educational programs and policies” (Faculty Senate constitution).

The Faculty Senate’s participatory role in shared governance is only effective when the faculty is involved.  Knowing and communicating with your department’s senator(s) and faculty representatives on the standing committees is an important part of this process. Their contact information can be found through the links on this webpage. They serve as your voice in the Faculty Senate and want to hear from you!

Additionally, I also want to hear from you. Please don’t hesitate to contact me anytime.

Best wishes for a great year!

Jessica Stovall

President, Faculty Senate, 2022-2023
