University Senate

The University Senate is an essential component of University governance. Senate members are called on to:

  • Consider and make recommendations regarding all matters of general university interest, including matters referred to it by the president or Board of Trustees
  • Review all new policies and changes to existing policies
  • Submit recommendations to the president on any matter affecting the interests of the university
  • Make recommendations regarding honorary degree recipients

The University Senate reports directly to the Board of Trustees of Emory University and it is a separate entity from the Emory College Senate. Additional information about the University Senate can be found at
