Committee on Committees

Purpose or Function: Review the committees and councils annually to update charges and membership. Perform a comprehensive review of committees and councils on a rotating three-year cycle to ensure that they are fulfilling their function and to make recommendations to the President’s Cabinet on whether each should continue. If continuation is recommended, suggestions for changes in membership, structure or charge may also be made. The Responsible University Officer (RUO) for a committee or council may ask for an out-of-sequence review. Each RUO should provide meeting minutes of the committee or council being reviewed and may also provide comments about the work of the committee for consideration during the review.

Membership:  Appointments are for one year, but may be renewed without a term limit, and include representation from the following groups with selection as indicated.
