FOR PROSPECTIVE MEMBERS

If interested in serving on UCCC, complete the Faculty Committee Survey indicating your interest. The survey is sent by the Provost’s office to faculty in January of each year. Please note the meeting schedule for any course conflicts. Prospective Members should have a familiarity with undergraduate education and/or participation with the College Courses and Curricula Committee. 


Service on University Standing Committees provides an opportunity for faculty to participate in shared governance and help set the direction of the university. If you are interested, it is important for you to complete the University Standing Committees Survey to let the Provost’s Office know on which committees you may wish to serve.

  • Employees eligible to serve on a University Standing Committee are those in a .75 or greater FTE position and benefit-eligible. Emeritus are always eligible.
  • Members appointed to faculty seats on UCCC and CUE should not hold a position higher than Department Head, which aligns with the eligibility requirement for membership in the Faculty Senate.
  • Completing the survey does not guarantee appointment to a committee. Placement on a committee is subject to factors such as number of vacancies, seat designation (reserved for a specific unit), priority (specific rank and number of years selected), membership on other committees (to allow more opportunities for participation) and college/unit diversity.
  • Appointments for the upcoming year are made by the Committee on Committees and are approved by the Chancellor in the summer and notifications will go out in July.
