Faculty Senate requesting volunteers for Faculty Senate and presidential committees

Submitted by Faculty Senate


My term as Faculty Senate president will begin May 10. One of the first responsibilities of the incoming president and the newly constituted executive committee is the identification and nomination of faculty members and 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 years.

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 who 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.

Please take a few moments to fill the questionnaire out and return it to Candace LaBerge at candaceb@k-state.edu 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 13. Thank you in advance for your consideration of this opportunity. I look forward to working with you during the coming academic year.


Andy Bennett,
