Academic Senate Appointed Committees and Councils

The Academic Senate of Central Michigan University recognizes the importance of enabling and supporting its members to serve our mission in the pursuit of knowledge, wisdom, discovery, and creativity. Much of the work of the Senate takes place through a network of committees and councils. The Senate is indebted to the many faculty, students, and administrators whose efforts have been responsible for the Senate’s success.
