Faculty Senate & Governance

Provost’s message

Interim Provost and Executive Vice President Gerald Baldasty

Provost and Executive Vice President Gerald Baldasty

Shared governance is an essential ingredient in the excellence and success of the University of Washington.  I value the work, advice and leadership of the Faculty Senate, Senate Executive Committee, Senate Committee on Planning and Budgeting, the faculty councils, and the secretary of the faculty.  All play an important role at UW, as we work together on issues such as faculty salaries and salary compression, how we use our learning spaces well, and how we can ensure that every student has a truly transformative experience at the UW.  Together we can continue building on the foundation of good work we have established.
