University Senate and Governance

Commonwealth University Senate Constitution

Preamble

This Constitution establishes a system of shared governance that delineates the shared authority of the faculty, management, the students, and all recognized collective bargaining units. Underlying this Constitution is the assumption that faculty, staff, and students wish to work with management in a collegial environment for the benefit of Commonwealth University of Pennsylvania.

This Constitution will not contradict, interfere with, or supersede agreements reached between the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE), and all recognized collective bargaining units or any obligations of Commonwealth University of Pennsylvania (also referred to as Commonwealth University) under applicable state or federal laws or governing policies or procedure/standards of PASSHE.
