Faculty Senate Handbook
The Faculty Handbook contains statements of policy and procedure established by the Board of Trustees and provides a guide by which the Board, Faculty, and Administration conduct their relations with each other in matters of university academics, planning, and policy.
"It is the policy of Western Washington University that there shall be meaningful participation by the faculty, through the Faculty Senate or other recognized faculty bodies, in matters relating to university academics, budget, planning and policy in matters at all levels of internal university governance. This is consistent with the University's policy of open participation in governance." Art. II.B.2.
The Handbook is divided into Articles and Appendices. Appendix One is the Constitution of the Faculty with its articles and bylaws.
