UNIVERSITY COMMITTEES From the Faculty Handbook, § Meeting Schedules

University committees determine their own meeting schedules. Committee meetings should be coordinated with the UFC and the college faculty meeting schedule that is developed by the Provost’s office in collaboration the UFC leadership and the presiding officers of the college governing bodies. The schedule of UFC and college governing body meetings is announced by July 1 of each year. The committee chairs will announce the schedule for their meetings no later than August 30 each year.

COLLEGE COMMITTEES to be determined by the governing bodies for each of the separate college faculties.

The suggestion is to schedule University Committee meetings at least two weeks prior to the date of an upcoming UFC meeting. This will allow time to finalize actions and upload materials by the UFC agenda deadline.
