Faculty Senate elects 2021-2022 Executive Committee officers

The Wake Forest Faculty Senate has elected officers for the 2021-2022 year. The Faculty Senate is an advisory group of thirty-seven elected faculty members from the seven Schools of Wake Forest University. It represents faculty in matters of academics and research, as well as policies and procedures that affect faculty and the student educational experience.

The Senate Executive Committee meets regularly with the Provost and Dean of the Medical School to speak on behalf of University faculty to advise on policy decisions affecting faculty, staff and broader the University community.

2021-2022 Executive Committee:

  • Matthew Phillips (Business), president
  • Tracey Banks (Law), vice president
  • Saylor Breckenridge (Sociology), secretary
  • Arjun “Raja” Chatterjee (Medicine), at-large member of the Executive Committee

New officers, along with the senators elected this spring by each academic unit, begin their terms on April 1. This is a shift from earlier summer rotations designed to help the Senate build momentum and most effectively serve and represent faculty members.
