The General Faculty Standing Committees are permanent committees established by the Constitution and defined in the Bylaws of the Faculty Senate. There are currently ten (10) Faculty Senate Standing Committees. These committees specialize in particular areas and carry out much of the day-to-day work of the Faculty Senate.
At times, ad hoc committees of the General Faculty may be created to explore, define and/or address issues of concern to the faculty. Committee members will be appointed by the Chair of the Faculty after consultation with the Faculty Senate Executive Committee.
