    The Academic Senate was codified in 1920 and an unique part of the University of California system. It serves as a "vehicle" through which the faculty participates in the shared governance of the university.

    The Academic Senate faculty are responsible for determining admission criteria; approving and supervising all courses, curricula, and academic programs; determining degree requirements; advising the administration on faculty appointments and promotions; and advising the administration on budget and financial planning.
