The Faculty Senate is the representative body of the Faculty Association, to which all full-time and adjunct faculty belong.

Per the revised Faculty Association Constitution, approved by the AWC District Governing Board in June 2014, the Faculty Association seeks to participate in matters of educational policy at AWC.  Such issues include curriculum, instructional methods, evaluation of instruction, teaching facilities, learning materials for instruction, standards for placement and retention of students, criteria for granting of certificates and degrees, and those aspects of student life that relate directly to the instructional process.

Representatives from each Division are selected at the Division start-up meeting each August and serve on the Faculty Senate through the following election.  Senators may serve multiple terms.

Faculty Association officers are elected each February and take office in May.  These elected officers serve as President and Vice-President of the Faculty Senate, and District Governing Board Representative.  The term for elected officers is one year.

Officers meet regularly with the Vice President of Learning Services and College President to discuss issues of import to faculty.
