Highline College's Faculty Senate 

From Article II of the Faculty Senate Constitution
The purpose of the Senate shall be to provide a forum for faculty discussion, advocacy and leadership regarding academic affairs at Highline Community College. Toward that objective, the Senate shall:

  1. Serve as the paramount recommending body to the President and Board of Trustees to establish and revise college-wide academic standards, grading policies, degree requirements, and educational outcomes after considering input from all interested parties. (See R.C.W.28B.50.140(11))
  2.  Serve as an advisory board to the Vice President and Deans of Instruction for college wide curricular issues.
  3. Gather, synthesize, and disseminate information relevant to interdisciplinary curricula and instructional activities.
  4. Hear and consider faculty concerns not covered by the HCEA Agreement and communicate such issues as are deemed appropriate to the Administration and the Board of Trustees.
  5. Provide recognition for exemplary faculty who have made significant contributions to the college through teaching, scholarship, or other service.

Our Guest Policy

In keeping with the spirit of including the contributions of the campus community in a structured way, senators and guests can submit by email possible topics for discussion to the Senate Chair, Eric Baer. Submissions must be made at least one week prior to the next scheduled meeting for consideration on the agenda. Submission can also be made as part of the public comment time at the end of each Senate meeting. The Senate is an open meeting and anyone can attend. We ask guests to the Senate to sit around the sides of the room, in order to make room for the elected Senators to be seated at the main table.
