In the two years of intense work, during which the “senators” have addressed several issues of strategic interest for USI, such as the analysis of the overall training curricula provided by USI, the approval of the financial budget of the University, the review of the processes for promoting faculty, and the approval of the new Students Corporation.
According to the development plans of USI, the role of the Academic Senate will increase considerably, becoming an increasingly influential and central body due to the various tasks assigned to it by the University Council.
