Welcome to the University of Houston Faculty Senate

Welcome to the pages of the UH Faculty Senate website. Here, we hope you will find the informational resources you are looking for. Our goal when developing and managing this website is to bring under one umbrella a variety of links and resources that might impact the day-to-day work of a faculty member. Of course, we wish to also provide information on the workings of the faculty senate itself and on all the proceedings and documents related to the various senate committees. In that sense, the senate website is designed to be both “outward-looking,” that is, a resource for UH faculty and “inward-looking,” that is, a resource for faculty senators.
