As a legislative body, it has an advisory role in academic matters, including: standards for admission, selection, and retention of students; requirements of granting of degrees; curricular requirements for general education, majors and minors, and professional education. The Faculty Senate has a primary responsibility to make policy recommendations to promote standards for faculty welfare in tenure, promotions, and fringe benefits; development of programs of research, experimentation, and instruction.
