Historical Note

In 1993, the organization known as the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) General Faculty became the UTSA Faculty Senate. Membership requirements and Faculty Senate responsibilities are outlined in the UTSA Handbook of Operating Procedures.

The Faculty Senate of UTSA is composed of all personnel holding an academic title as Professor, Associate Professor, Assistant Professor, Instructor, Lecturer, Visiting Professor, Visiting Associate Professor, Visiting Assistant Professor, Adjunct academic titles, Emeritus academic titles, Teaching Associate, and Specialist.

Voting members of the Faculty Senate include the following: 1. All Professors, Associate Professors, and Assistant Professors. 2. All Visiting Professors, Visiting Associate Professors and Visiting Assistant Professors who have had two semesters of service at The University of Texas at San Antonio. 3. All Instructors and Lecturers who have had four or more semesters of service at either rank at The University of Texas at San Antonio. 4. Such officials as are designated in the Regents' Rules and Regulations as being ex officio members of all institutional faculties of The University of Texas System. 5. Such other officials as the Board of Regents, upon recommendation of the President and the Chancellor of the University of Texas System, may designate. A faculty member has voting status only on the basis of half-time employment or more at the University.

The Faculty Senate establishes its own rules of procedure. As of the publication of the Handbook of Operating Procedures in 1991, the Faculty Senate is required to meet at least twice a year upon the call of the President.

The President or a delegate of the President presides at all meetings of the Faculty Senate.
