A-3 Faculty Committee on Committees

During the spring semester the committee solicited, by campus mail, nominations for appointments to faculty standing committees from all members of the General Faculty. The committee received 35 responses by email and 16 on paper, with a total of 242 nominations. (The corresponding figures for 2000-2001 were 11, 23, and 213, respectively.) The committee met on April 23, and, using those nominations and others from members of the committee, agreed on a list to be considered by the president for openings on the standing committees for 2002-2003.

In its annual report for 2000-2001, the Retention and Recruitment Committee recommended that its function be expanded to include involvement in the recruitment, retention, and advancement of faculty, staff, and administrators (D 1368). This recommendation was submitted to the Committee on Committees by Faculty Council Chair Bruce Palka. At its meeting on April 23, 2002, the committee agreed, by consensus, that such an expansion would be inappropriate, in part because the Retention and Recruitment Committee was created to deal with the retention and recruitment of undergraduate minority students, and the committee is made up primarily of students and administrators with that function in mind.
