The University Academic Senate (UAS) is a deliberative body whose responsibilities include academic planning, review and evaluation of academic programs, and formulation and appraisal of initiatives and policies relevant to the faculty and the academic mission of the university. Its conclusions on university policy, academic planning and evaluation will represent the official collective stance of the Academic Division. The Provost, who has ultimate responsibility for all executive decisions and actions within the Academic Division of the university, will report the conclusions of the UAS to the appropriate authorities outside the Academic Division, along with her or his own conclusions. Recommendations of the University Academic Senate shall be subject to the approval of the President and the Trustees. (For additional information about committee responsibilities and membership requirements, please see University Academic Senate Statutes)
