It is through the Faculty Senate that the tenured and tenure-track faculty are represented. Every department/academic unit has one or two Senators. There are also nine senator-at-large seats rendering a body that has about 100 members.
Assembled on this background webpage is information on how titles, title modifiers, and shared governance work at Cornell. Also provided are links to a recent survey of NTT titleholders, a 2004 Senate Report, and how NTT representation is handled at peer institutions.
