Appointments will be made by the provost from nominations received through standard procedures.

The committee shall develop its own operating procedures subject to the approval of the provost, to whom it will report. Copies of any minutes or reports are to be provided to the Graduate Dean, to the Faculty Senate, to the Provost, and to the University Library. The chairperson may be invited to visit the Faculty Senate to inform the Senate of the activities of the committee.


The chairperson shall be elected by the committee members.


The committee shall consist of three (3) faculty members who are not members of the Faculty Senate. Each member shall serve a three-year term, and these terms will be staggered so that one member will retire from the committee each year.
