Committee Assignments - Richards College

Members of the Strategic Planning, Graduate Programs, and Undergraduate Programs Committees are appointed by the department chair. Decisions by these committees are subject to a vote by the Richards College faculty (as members are not elected by the faculty). Committee decisions regarding changes in the faculty handbook, the vision statement, mission statement, statement of ethical expectations, strategic goals, action items, or curriculum are subject to a vote by the Richards College faculty. Richards College faculty will be notified of the committee's decisions by email. Without a dissenting vote in the following seven day period, the committee’s decision will be considered ratified by the faculty. If a dissenting vote is registered, the committee will decide if an electronic vote of the faculty is appropriate or if the decision should be discussed and a vote taken during the next Richards College faculty meeting. Membership consists of:

  • Strategic Planning: 2 members from each department, the associate dean (nonvoting), and the assistant dean (nonvoting)
  • Undergraduate Programs: 2 members from each department and the assistant dean (nonvoting)
  • Graduate Programs: 1 member from each department and the associate dean (nonvoting)
