Senate Executive Committee (SEC)
Basic Page Sidebar Menu Faculty Senate
SEC is a 58-member, elected body representing Penn's Standing Faculty to the administration.
On behalf of the Standing Faculty, members of SEC engage in substantive investigation and consideration of matters of import with the University administration.
The Faculty Senate Executive Committee serves three major functions:
- Consultation with senior administrators, with an eye toward understanding their areas of responsibility and staying informed about their plans in an effort to better engage with them, ensuring that faculty perspectives and concerns are brought to bear on relevant issues.
- Review and approval of changes in formal policy that fall under Senate responsibility.
- Initiating consideration and exploration of issues that are of concern to the SEC membership, or that are referred to SEC for discussion and response by its committees. These issues often became the topics of further consultation with the administration.
- Provide guidance to the Senate's standing committees.
SEC meetings are held monthly on Wednesdays, from 3:00-5:00 p.m.
The Faculty Senate is comprised of all members of the Standing Faculty (including C-E faculty). As such, meetings are open to all members of the Standing Faculty only.
