Fredonia University Senate

Welcome to the University Senate at the State University of New York at Fredonia!
Built on the framework for consultation and shared governance established by the Policies of the Board of Trustees of the State University of New York, the University Senate is comprised of faculty representatives from every academic department and area and professional staff/management representatives from each of the four university divisions on campus.

Here you can find information about our bylaws, officers, meetings, and standing committees, as well as Senate news and current business.  You can visit our Document Archive for agendas, minutes, and reports of Senate meetings prior to 2015.  The Senate Archives, 2015 - 2021 folder contains Senate materials from the past several years, while the 2021 - 2022 Senate Materials folder contains current Senate documents.

If you have an issue that you would like the Senate to address or a question about what the Senate is working on, please contact Dr. Mary Beth Sievens, Chair of the University Senate, at



Previous meeting minutes, agendas, and documents as well as approved Senate actions can be found in our Google Folder.
