The committee consists of at least fourteen members of the general faculty, at least eight of whom are current members of the Faculty Senate; the provost and vice president for Academic Affairs or his/her designee (ex officio); and the Chief Financial Officer or his/her designee (ex officio). Committee members shall be selected by the Committee on Committees, in consultation with the provost and vice president for Academic Affairs. It is expected that each academic unit shall have one representative. The remaining members are unrestricted with regard to academic unit affiliation. Terms of service are two years, staggered. The committee chair and 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. Committee members continue to serve until their replacements are appointed.
