TSU Faculty Manual Section I : Part I : Article I  (Current)
The faculty of the University shall perform the following functions in regard to the academic operation of the university: approval of degrees; curriculum planning; determination of requirements for earned degrees; establishment of academic regulations, recommendation of candidates for appointment, tenure, retention, and promotion; participation in the selection and evaluation of academic administrators; and consider matters that affect the welfare of the members of the faculty.

The Faculty Assembly is the official policy making body of the Texas Southern University (TSU) faculty. It is the faculty's vehicle for participation in the shared governance of the university.

The recommendations of the Faculty Assembly are made to either the Provost or directly to the President of the University for appropriate action or for endorsement to the Texas Southern University Board of Regents. The Assembly may delegate such powers as it chooses to the Faculty Senate. All decisions and/or actions of the Faculty Senate, however, are subject to review, endorsement or repeal by the Faculty Assembly.
We're always trying to provide you with the best Faculty Representation, the kind that you deserve.
With this in mind, we have created some new things:
