Student Senate: Administrative Committees

Last updated

Students participate in the governance of the institution through committees advisory to the Chancellor through the Provost and Vice Chancellor or the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs. Administrative committees are established by the chancellor; ad hoc committees may be appointed at any time for specific purposes.

Membership on administrative committees consists of administrators, faculty/academic staff and students. Where appropriate, classified personnel or citizen members of the community are invited to serve. The number and ratio of members vary from committee to committee. There is a plurality of voting student members of the following committees: University Artists Series Committee, Athletic Committee, Children’s Center Committee, Forum Committee, University Health Committee, International Film Committee, Parking Appeals Board, Recreation Committee, Viennese Ball Committee, and any building committee for construction using student funds.

Eligible student members on administrative committees are recommended by the president of the Student Senate and confirmed by the Student Senate. Students serve annual academic year terms. More information is available at the Student Senate office, Davies Center 220.

These administrative committees are organized within the University Centers.
