Engineering Senate

[From Art. 1 in the Clark School's Plan of Organization (Sep. 16, 2022):]
The Engineering Senate is an integral part of the Clark School's system of governance. Its powers are limited so as to not contravene those delegated by the President to the Dean of the School.

The Engineering Senate considers any matter of concern to the School including, but not limited to, educational, budgetary, and personnel matters; School-community matters; long range plans; facilities; and faculty, staff and student affairs.

The Senate advises the Dean, President, Chancellor, or Board of Regents as it deems appropriate.
