Message from the Chair
Dr. Orlenthea S. McGowan
2018-2019 Faculty Senate Chair

I welcome you to the Langston University Faculty Senate web page. It is my privilege to serve as your 2018-19 Faculty Senate Chair. The LU Faculty Senate is the principal governance body representing the LU faculty. We believe in shared governance. We believe that faculty members have a right and a responsibility to collaborate with administrators, students, and other university constituents to move the university forward.

We believe that faculty members are most effective when working with internal and external constituents to advance the university’s best interests. We support the concept of participatory democracy through which representatives are selected to address the concerns of the whole faculty. The Faculty Senate is committed to the work of shared governance to enrich the working conditions for our faculty and to maintain the integrity of our academic curricula and research programs. All faculty and members of the university community are welcome to contact me to share ideas, suggestions, or concerns. I look forward to engaging and productive relations with all constituents of Langston University.
