Committee Rosters

Key

This page lists both standing Faculty Senate committees 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, beginning and ending in August. 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 member for a one-year term. Committee vacancies are highlighted in BOLD, and names listed are outgoing representatives.

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: Ethan.Frost@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.
