College Senate

The College Senate forms their opinions on any subject relevant to the College's interests and makes suggestions or recommendations to the appropriate College committee, officer, or Campus Council for further consideration.

The College Senate seeks advice from and makes policy recommendations to the President of the College, the appropriate College Committee, and/or Campus Council for further consideration, and in all areas of College activity. It may establish standing and special committees to deal with specific issues. The College Senate may also elect to submit recommendations to the NOVA Board of Directors through the President of the College.
