Committee Rosters

Key

This page lists both standing Faculty Senate committee as well as other campus committees to which Senate selects faculty representatives. Committee positions that are assigned to a particular academic unit on campus are indicated. Some committee rosters include members NOT elected by Senate who are listed here only for convenience and are designated {in italics}.

The seat and term years are indicated for each committee position. Committee seats are designated for representation from the specified academic unit. After three regular elections, remaining vacant seats may be filled at-large by any faculty for a one-year term. Committee vacancies and outgoing members are highlighted in BOLD.

Committee Chairs of standing Senate committees are expected to convene and meet with the committee on a regular basis, attend all Faculty Senate meetings in order to act as a liaison regarding all business pertaining to the committee, and submit an annual written report, outlining the membership and work of the committee.

Elections are held at the last two spring semester Faculty Senate meetings. Faculty members or senators may submit nominations to Faculty Senate Secretary: aimee.miller@millersville.edu. Remaining vacancies are filled at the first fall meeting with a third regular election and an at-large election.

Nominations submitted in advance will be included on a printed ballot. However, nominations may still be made by senators at the meeting, and additional names will be included on the final ballots.
