Faculty Senate

The Faculty Senate is composed of representatives from each academic department, the Library, the Agricultural Research Centers, and the Agricultural Extension Service. Faculty Senate is the chief governance body of the faculty at Montana State University-Bozeman. Under the governance authority of the Montana University System, the Faculty Senate frames policies, procedures and standards of the Faculty Handbook, oversees the curricula, evaluates new academic programs, and serves to enhance communication between MSU faculty, administration, and students.

Family Advocate

Family Advocates help parents and other family members navigate the university system and learn about the policies and programs available at MSU to meet their individual and family needs, and serve as a “first stop” for faculty, students and staff to receive support and information regarding who to contact with questions about:

  • Arranging leave for childbirth or adoption, or to care for a sick child, partner or elder
  • The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Breastfeeding and pumping on campus
  • The Family Care Rooms
  • Childcare on campus, around town and in Gallatin Valley
  • Title IX protections for pregnant or parenting students
