Inactive Committees

Administrative Processes and Policies Committee

This committee provided information and guidance pertaining to the fiscal and administrative policies of the School of Undergraduate Studies. The committee involved some business affairs training for administrative staff, provided a forum for sharing challenges and best practices across units within the school, and promoted efficient business practices for the school.
Disbanded in fall 2013.

School-wide Event Committee

Fall 2010 – Fall 2014

The purpose of the School-Wide Event Committee was to create and plan unique UGS events in cooperation and support of university-wide occasions, such as Gone To Texas, Family Weekend and Explore UT. In addition, the committee made recommendations regarding development of other school-wide events to support the mission of UGS.

Ad hoc Committee on Social Media
Fall 2010-Fall 2011

The purpose of the committee was to document the the School of Undergraduate Studies’ current social media presence and then develop recommendations on the best use of resources to meet our present and future needs. This committee met its charge and was disbanded in fall 2011.

New Employee Orientation Committee
Fall 2010-Fall 2011

The purpose of this committee was to develop a shared new employee orientation to be used across the School of Undergraduate Studies. The committee identified and created materials, activities and training for inclusion in new employee orientation in the school. Some suggestions made by the committee remain under review while others were implemented and continue to inform UGS procedures. The committee met its charge and was disbanded in fall 2011.

Use of Technology Committee
Fall 2010-Fall 2011

The purpose of this committee was to share information, identify IT needs in the School of Undergraduate Studies, and develop recommendations for school-wide priorities in the use of new technologies. After several committee recommendations were implemented—such as magnetic card strip readers in all advising offices to aid student check-in, a central UGS chat server so all staff can communicate quickly with one another via instant message, and a “UGS Help” wiki to provide a central repository of technology tutorials—the committee sponsor determined that a committee format was not as useful as ongoing communication of such information. The committee disbanded in fall 2011.
