The Faculty Senate represents the South Dakota Mines faculty in providing advice to the President on all matters relating to the responsibilities of faculty including the formation of university policy, the maintenance and development of curriculum and the establishment of academic standards where such matters of interest to the faculty are specifically addressed within the Agreement between the Board of Regents and the Council of Higher Education.

The Faculty Senate online resources (listed below) contain useful information about the Senate and other matters of interest to the faculty. Please let me know if there is any additional information that should be posted to the site or if I can be of further assistance to you.
