The Mission of the Faculty Senate is to serve as a representative voice of the faculty and to provide a means of communication between the faculty and the Chancellor and the Administration staff of LSUHSC-NO.


President's Message

Dear LSUHSC-NO Faculty and Visitors:Spieler

The Faculty Senate is an elected body representing the faculty of the six schools on our campus (i.e., the Schools of Allied Health, Dentistry, Graduate Studies, Medicine, Nursing, and Public Health) as well as the LSUHSC-NO library. Senators are elected from each of the Schools’ Faculty Assemblies / Organizations.

We are a collective voice of the faculty and provide a forum for communication with the Chancellor and his administration. The Senate meets regularly on the second Tuesday of each month, and these meetings are open to any recognized group within the LSUHSC-NO community that wishes to present suggestions or raise problems for consideration by the Senate. We also communicate regularly with the Faculty Assemblies or Organizations within each school and communicate with the faculty senates of the other colleges and universities within the State of Louisiana through the Association of Louisiana Faculty Senates (ALFS). Representatives from our Senate also attend the monthly meetings held by the Board of Supervisors.

The Senate is committed to upholding the LSUHSC-NO mission in providing education, research, and public service through direct patient care and community outreach. It is my feeling that we serve our mission best through a collaborative effort, capitalizing on the rich diversity of our faculty and range of their expertise in all facets of health care. It is my intent to continue leading the Senate as a proactive, informed, and inclusive voice of all of the members of our great faculty in facilitating our administrative colleagues vision for the future of our campus.

Please take the time to familiarize yourself with this website, review the work of the Faculty Senate, read the minutes posted from the meetings, and involve yourself in ways that help us succeed. If you are in need of information or assistance, please do not hesitate to contact one of your Senators or myself.
