Faculty committees are distinctive from Special Advisory Committees because they are governed by faculty of the university.
The Faculty Senate Office will issue a call for nominations for faculty committees during the spring semester. Please respond to this call or contact the appropriate chair if you are interested in serving on a particular faculty committee.
