Office of the Faculty Senate


Committees

The faculty committees are under the auspices of the Faculty Senate and the membership and means of appointment are given in the USC Columbia Faculty Manual. The official listing of faculty committees and their respective missions is in the faculty manual. 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.
