The Provost/EVC's Office is the channel for all communication between the Provost & Executive Vice Chancellor and the Academic Senate – Riverside Division. The Academic Senate is the independent organized body representing the faculty in the University of California system and at each campus as part of UC's shared governance structure. Shared governance at the University of California entails a balance of faculty, staff, and student input and accountability in the planning and decision-making processes. The Provost holds a special relationship with the Academic Senate – Riverside Division as it meets its responsibilities of determining academic policy, overseeing admissions, supervising curricula and courses, and advising on faculty appointments, merits and promotions. For more information, visit the Academic Senate website.
