About Senate Joint Committees and Councils

In the spirit of shared governance, joint committees and councils are proposed on the Senate floor and recommended to the president of the university by a majority vote of the Senate. Joint committees and councils are administered by the designated committee administrator. At any time, the president or Senate may evaluate the effectiveness of joint committees in conjunction with the Steering Committee. It is the responsibility of the joint committees and councils to report any policy change recommendations to the Faculty Senate Steering Committee for consideration.

Rules and policies of the Senate govern the operation of its committees. Senate committees may adopt temporary rules and policies necessary to the operation of committees. These temporary rules must be consonant with the constitution and the bylaws and are reported to the Office of the Faculty Senate as they are adopted. Such changes are subject to subsequent approval by the Senate.

  2. To consider all undergraduate student appeals of readmission decisions or academic standing.
  3. To consider undergraduate student appeals of decisions that have been made by the College of Undergraduate Studies concerning late withdrawals, late drops, late adds, and medical withdrawals.

A representative from the professional advising office for each college may serve as a non-voting resource person to assist the committee members. The vice president for Student Development and Enrollment Services or designee (ex officio) will serve as chair and identify other ex officio members. The vice chair shall be elected annually by its membership at the first meeting of the committee after the new Faculty Senate is elected, normally in the early fall term.The chair will make every effort to ensure that areas relating to Admissions and Standards are represented. Terms of service shall be three years, staggered, with the exception of the student member, who shall serve for one year.

If a committee member is appointed a member by virtue of the position held which will not change over multiple committee terms, those members may be listed as continuing members. When the continuing member ceases to hold the position that entitles him/her to such membership, membership on the committee ends. A committee member designated as an ex officio member is a contributing member who takes part in all discussions and serves as a resource person but is non-voting.
