This is, of course, a specialized program demanding a high degree of expertise in a specific field. Nevertheless, this faculty senate has some teeth.

Very impressive.

An empowered community of scholars

As the governing body of the School of Nursing, the Faculty Senate serves as the formal instrument for the exercise of authority with respect to the educational, research, and practice affairs vested in the faculty by the Statutes of the Corporation.

The Faculty Senate sets policies for the selection of applicants and development and monitoring of admissions and progressions; setting regulations for instruction and requirements for degrees in course and faculty; setting of its own procedures for governance; and determining the composition of and qualifications for membership in the Faculty.
