The committee members shall be appointed by the Vice Chair of the Faculty, after consultation with the Faculty Senate Executive Committee, from names suggested by the Nominating Committee or other members of the General Faculty. Student members of this committee shall be nominated by the Associated Students of the University of Arizona (ASUA) and by the Graduate and Professional Student Council (GPSC). Members of this committee shall serve one-year terms.
