Proposal to Create a Student Life and Activities Committee (D 7790).
Professor Dominic Lasorsa (journalism and Committee on Committees chair) reviewed the proposed composition, function, and rationale for the establishment of this new committee. He said the new committee provided an effective mechanism for the faculty to provide input regarding student services not addressed by other standing committee of the General Faculty. Although the University has athletics councils who advise the president and the athletics department, the new committee would be charged with advising the Faculty Council on matters related to intercollegiate athletics and student athletes.
Chair Staiger asked for and received a second to the motion and asked if there was any discussion. There being none, the vote was called, and the motion passed unanimously by voice vote.
