The Faculty Senate of Oregon Tech maintains the institutional philosophy of shared governance characterized by open and responsible communication, fair treatment of individuals, participatory processes, and collaborative decision making, whereby each member of the faculty has the responsibility to speak and the right to be heard without prejudice. Such a governance philosophy, with the active support of the faculty, provides a climate in which ideas can be initiated, policies and practices can be tested, and a unity of purpose can be forged so that all members of the college community are encouraged and supported in their endeavor to contribute to the mission of Oregon Tech.
The Faculty Senate generally meets at 6:00pm on the first Tuesday of the month in the McLoughlin room of the College Union. The meetings are open to all members of the Oregon Tech faculty. Agenda items should be submitted to Senate President Robyn Cole, DOW 247, 541.885.1918, at least one week prior to the meeting.
