Other Departmental Committees

The Chair in consultation with FAC or the relevant Program Committees, usually appoints ad hoc committees to conduct departmental business that does not fall within the provinces of the standing committees.  On rare occasions, FAC may appoint, in consultation with the Chair,   ad hoc committees.  Ad hoc committees should be constituted so as to represent as fairly as possible the best interests of the Department.  All ad hoc committees report to FAC and to the Chair.

The Chair may establish, charge, and appoint the membership of additional departmental standing or ad hoc committees as required by the Department.  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.
