Historical Note

The University of Montana-Missoula's Faculty Senate serves to promote faculty involvement in the governance of the University. The Senate reviews, debates, and votes on issues pertaining to the academic and faculty welfare of The University of Montana (UM) in consultation and cooperation with the President and University administration. Faculty members contribute to UM governance by participating in the Senate and specific committees.

The first faculty meeting of the University was held on September 9, 1895. All five original faculty members were present. Some of the first topics of discussion were entrance examinations, the matriculation fee, and the welcoming ceremony which was to be held Wednesday, September 11, 1895. Faculty meetings were held often in the first few years to help get the University running smoothly. As the number of faculty grew, committees were formed to share the responsibilities. On October 30, 1961 this organizing body of the faculty officially became the Faculty Senate. Officials were elected and new procedures for the Senate, including the Robert’s Rules of Order, were voted on and adopted that year.
