Faculty Standing Committees

Two types of college standing committees exist:

  • Those appointed by the President with the advice of the Collegiate Assembly Executive Committee, and
  • those elected by the faculty. Committee work is considered part of a faculty member's responsibilities.

Operating Procedures

All college committees will report to one or more sources as designated. All committee recommendations which are procedural will be reported to appropriate administrators for action. All policy recommendations and major procedural changes will be reported to the Collegiate Assembly Executive Committee.

The Executive Committee will determine which items are of sufficient general importance to merit discussion and approval by the Collegiate Assembly. Committees will report fully to the individuals or groups designated at least once a semester.

Appointments

Appointments will be made by the President with Collegiate Assembly Executive Committee advice, except when elections are stipulated. Members of the Collegiate Assembly Executive Committee will be responsible to convene the organizational meeting of the committee by May 30, when an election of a chairperson will occur.

Minutes and Reports

Each committee shall distribute its minutes and reports to the President's office, Chairperson of Collegiate Assembly Executive Committee, Secretary of Collegiate Assembly Executive Committee, the Vice President of Academic Affairs, Faculty Association President, editor of Atlantic Cape Communicator, permanent committee files (kept at the Library's circulation desk), and its own members.

Committees will distribute copies of their minutes as indicated in each committee description. Committees will publish an agenda at least three working days in advance of meetings. These will include the time and place of meetings and major discussion items. They should be distributed to the faculty and administration.

Charges

All charges to college committees will be made or processed through the Collegiate Assembly Executive Committee.

Subcommittees

Committee chairperson will be empowered to create subcommittees or ad-hoc committees as needed to fulfill their functions. Members of subcommittees and ad-hoc committees need not be members of the full committee
