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 6:00 pm on the first Tuesday of the month in the College Union, McLoughlin room, on the Klamath Falls campus. The meetings are open to all members of the Oregon Tech faculty. Agenda items should be submitted at least one week prior to the meeting to: Senate President Terri Torres, BH176, 541.885.1468, Terri.Torres@oit.edu.
