The Faculty Senate Log contains a record of actions that were taken on college issues that were initiated by TCC College Faculty Senate in a format that should be easy to follow and track. The Senate Log was started in the Fall of 2007. Due to the number of issue discussed by the College Senate the Senate Log is separated by academic year.  Issue discussed and resolved during a particular academic year will be archived and can be accessed from the links below.  Items not resolved and still under discussion at the start of the new academic year will be updated in next academic year Senate Log.  All current issues will appear in the table below. If you have any questions on any of the items in the Senate Log, please contact one of the Faculty Senators or the  Chair of the College Faculty Senate.
