Committee Volunteer Opportunities

An important part of central faculty governance is the work that is done by Senate Assembly committees. We are currently soliciting volunteers to serve on sixteen Senate Assembly committees for the next academic year, of which eleven are advisory to Vice Presidents of the University. Serving on a Senate Assembly committee offers the opportunity to provide input on important issues that affect the university community, including members of the faculty in particular. We encourage your participation. To volunteer, please complete a volunteer form where you can identify the committees that interest you.
