Faculty Senate

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 LSU Health New Orleans.

President's Message

Dear LSU Health New Orleans Faculty and Visitors:Aimme McCauley, DNP RN CNE CHSE

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 LSU Health New Orleans library. Senators are elected from each of the Schools' Faculty Assemblies / Organizations.

We serve as a representative voice of the faculty and provide a means of communication between faculty and the Chancellor and his administration. The Senate meets regularly on the second Tuesday of each month from 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m in CSRB 563.  Meetings of the Faculty Senate are open to any recognized group within the LSU Health New Orleans community that wishes to present suggestions or raise awareness on issues that concern the LSU Health New Orleans faculty body as a whole. We 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 attend monthly meetings held by the Board of Supervisors.

The Senate is committed to upholding the LSU Health New Orleans mission in providing education, research, and public service through direct patient care and community outreach. It is my firm belief 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 and research. It is my intent to continue leading the Senate as a proactive, informed, and inclusive voice for the excellent faculty at LSU Health New Orleans in facilitating our administrative colleagues' vision for the future of our campus and community.

Please familiarize yourself with this website, review the work of the Faculty Senate, read the minutes posted from the meetings, and engage in Senate activities. If you need additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to contact your elected Senators, or you may contact me directly.
