2023-2024 Senate Meetings

Senate Meetings

The Senate meets four or five times per semester (typically once a month), with special meetings scheduled as necessary. The materials for Senate meetings are made available to the public via the Senate website one week prior to each scheduled meeting. The Senate Chair presides over each meeting. All Senate meetings are open to the public, but only Senators may actively participate and vote at the meetings. The majority of Senate meetings will be held virtually via Zoom, with the exception of the two meetings where President Pines will deliver his State of the Campus Address. Those meetings will be held in person in the Colony Ballroom of the Stamp Student Union but a virtual option will be offered for those who need it.

If you would like to receive general updates and reminders about senate meetings, you can subscribe to the general Senate listserv by sending an email to listserv@listserv.umd.edu with the body of the email containing: subscribe senate-public name-of-subscriber (ie. subscribe senate-public Joe Smith).

During the Senate meeting, Senators who have any trouble accessing the meeting via Zoom, voting via PointSolutions, or who experience other technical difficulties should email senatemeetinghelp@umd.edu for immediate support from IT staff. 


If you are planning to attend any Senate Meeting and require accessibility accommodations, please contact the University Senate Office at senateoffice@umd.edu or (301) 405-5805 at least a month in advance of the scheduled meeting date.


Unless otherwise noted, Senate Meetings will be held from 3:15PM-5:00PM.
