    Historical Note

    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 Senate is composed of "ladder-rank" (tenured or tenured-rank) faculty and the deans, provosts, chancellor, and president 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.
