Article XXX: University-Wide Committees

Every year before the end of the winter semester, the Provost or his/her designee will solicit in writing nominations from each of the units with represented faculty and/or academic-staff members for membership on each of the contractually constituted University committees. The Office of the Provost will provide to the dean/vice president, in conjunction with this request for nominations, information for each of these committees on eligibility requirements for potential committee members and the number of nominees to be sent forward from each unit. Faculty and academic-staff members may nominate themselves or be nominated (with their consent) by their colleagues and/or the administration of the unit. The required number of eligible individuals will be selected for each committee by the dean/vice president in consultation with the appropriate faculty or academic-staff committees such as a faculty council or the executive committee of the faculty council or senate of the School, College, or division. The Academic Senate Policy Committee and the Provost will select members of the committees from the slates presented, with membership to start at the beginning of the fall semester. If someone on the list for a given committee is found to be ineligible, the members of the committee will be chosen from among the remaining names on the slate.
