Additional Departmental Committees
The Chair may establish, charge, and appoint the membership of additional Departmental standing or ad hoc committees as required by the Department. For standing committees with a duration of one academic year or more, the duties of the committees must be approved by FAC and included in the Department Operating Procedures; the discontinuation of such standing committees requires FAC approval. In establishing Departmental committees, naming members and designating a committee chair, the Chair shall consult with the FAC. The Chair will welcome requests and preferences from the faculty before establishing and making appointments to Departmental committees.
