Committee's annual reports from previous years:

FUNCTION: To recommend to the president, and to the chief information officer, and to the Faculty Council changes in policies regarding information technology; to consult with and advise the chief information officer about policies and procedures pertaining to information technology at the University.

COMPOSITION: Fifteen voting members of the General Faculty, thirteen of which will serve three-year staggered terms. In addition, every year the Chair of the Faculty Council shall appoint two voting faculty members of the Faculty Council for one-year terms. Eight of the faculty members will be from college/school faculty information technology (IT) committees and will rotate among the colleges and schools that have faculty IT committees. As an IT faculty term expires, the deans of colleges/schools with faculty IT committees will send the name of a faculty member of the IT committee to the Committee on Committees. The remaining five faculty members will be selected through the regular procedures of the Committee on Committees (see HOP 2-1040 section B). The Committee on Committees will submit all faculty recommendations/nominations, including the IT panel, to the president for appointment. There will be four staff members appointed for two-year staggered terms. At least two of the staff member representatives shall not be employed in IT-related areas. The President shall appoint three student members for one-year terms, one from each panel of names submitted by Student Government, the Senate of College Councils, and the Graduate Student Assembly. Each year, the committee shall elect its own Chair and Vice Chair who shall be voting faculty members of the committee. The Chief Information Officer and a representative from the Information Technology Research & Educational Technology Committee (R&E) shall serve as ex officio members without vote. A representative from each of the following shall be selected by the President to serve as an administrative advisor without vote: the Center for Teaching and Learning, financial affairs, and department chairs.

***On March 17, 2014, President Powers approved D 10287-10289b with formal notification to UT System.*** See legislation for suggested implementation of staggered terms for eight IT faculty.
