The members of the University Assembly and the Faculty Senate advance the mission of the University of Missouri-St. Louis by contributing their time, talents, insights, and experiences to the governance of the campus. On behalf of an intellectually and culturally diverse campus community, the Senate has primary responsibility for making educational policy decisions to create a rigorous, innovative, student-oriented environment for learning, research, and community service. The Senate and Assembly together and through their committees advise the Chancellor and other senior administrators on matters related to students, faculty and staff. Through these efforts the Senate and Assembly strive to make UM-St. Louis a premier public urban research university.
