The Faculty Senate is set to make the final vote to accept the 2016 TSU Faculty Handbook. After a long, laborious process the Faculty Senate has crafted an entirely new handbook. According to Dr. Catanzaro, "The Tennessee State University Faculty Handbook has not been updated since 1989, so this is an important revision that impacts all Faculty at Tennessee State University." The final vote to approve or reject the Handbook is scheduled for April 21st, 2016, and will be posted here soon thereafter. Again, Dr. Catanzaro, "Faculty Senate anticipates that the “Revised Faculty Handbook” will be approved and expects it to be put into effect at the end of the spring semester."
