Faculty Senate

Hello,

I am honored to serve as the Faculty Senate President for the 2020-2021 academic year. We have had an unprecedented summer, and I appreciate the hard work that this outstanding group of senators has already done. I am looking forward to the continued work of this senate as we strive to make UNA the best that it can be.  UNA is extraordinary and I am thankful to have the opportunity to be a part of this higher education institution.

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).  To that end, I am grateful to be a part of Faculty Senate this coming year and I look forward to the work ahead. 

Please contact me if I can be of service in any way.  In addition, contact your department’s faculty senator(s) who can be found on this webpage.  They are serving as your voice in Faculty Senate and want to hear from you! Best wishes for a great year!

Laura Williams
President, Faculty Senate, 2020-2021
