The Faculty Senate is empowered by its Constitution to be the primary body through which the faculty participate in the shared governance of Westcliff University. The Senate is composed of all faculty members of the University. The Senate’s meetings are held quarterly throughout the academic year.

- Curriculum Committee
- Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee Minutes
- Faculty Affairs Committee
- Performance Assessment Committee
The Senate Executive Committee includes the Faculty Senate President, Vice President, Secretary, and Parliamentarian. The University President is also an ex-officio member.
