Faculty Senate elects new officers

Professor of law Richard L. Williamson heads a group of newly elected officers to the University of Miami’s Faculty Senate, the entity that plays a critical role in dealing with academic policies, new program and degree approvals, reviews of chairs and deans, and many other matters of collegial concern. Williamson, who joined the School of Law in 1994, has been elected chair.

The other incoming Faculty Senate officers for 2009-2010 include Sherrill H. Hayes, professor and chair of physical therapy at the Miller School of Medicine, who has been elected first vice chair of the senate; and Victoria Mitrani, a professor at the School of Nursing and Health Studies, who is the senate’s new second vice chair.
