Faculty Senate requesting volunteers for Faculty Senate and Presidential committees
May 2, 2013
My term as Faculty Senate president will begin May 14. One of the first responsibilities of the incoming president and the newly constituted Executive Committee is the identification and nomination of faculty members and unclassified professional staff to serve on university committees. Because these committees are an essential element of the university’s shared governance initiative, I strongly encourage you to consider serving on one or more of them in the upcoming academic year.
The names of each committee along with the number of members needed are listed below. For Faculty Senate committees we will appoint the faculty members or unclassified professionals that are needed to complete each committee’s membership. For presidential and other university committees, we will recommend appointments, with the final selection being made by those who oversee the committees. The length of term for each committee can vary from one to three years. Should you need further information about one or more of these committees, please contact the current chair of the committee. Their names are listed in the committee handbook, which can be found on the office of academic personnel website.
Here is a link to a questionnaire for your use. Please take a few moments to fill it out and return it to Candace LaBerge, firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have interest in serving on one or more of the following committees. This is of great assistance to us as we make committee appointments and recommendations.
I would appreciate hearing from you by Friday, May 10. Thank you in advance for your consideration of this opportunity. I look forward to working with you during the coming academic year.
