All-University Faculty Committees

The Committee on Committees, elected from current Senate membership by division, appoints the members and chairpersons of all Constitutional committees and ensures adequate and required divisional representation.

The Committee on Committee  recruits faculty primarily based on the interests in service that
individual faculty report each Spring to the
Faculty Committees Preference Survey.

The Committee on Committees also makes recommendations to the President concerning the membership and chairpersons of committees established by administrative action and ensures divisional representation as appropriate. (See Article IV, Section 4.1 of the PSU Faculty Constitution.)

Constitutional standing committees are those established under provisions of the Faculty Constitution.

Administrative committees are those established by the President and charged by him or her with a specific assignment on a continuing basis for periods of one or more years.

 Ad Hoc committees are established from time to time by the Faculty Senate with a specific
charge and for a defined period of time.


A listing of Faculty All-University Committees is published in the annual Faculty Governance Guide.*

An annual calendar of Committee Reports is also published in the Faculty Governance Guide.
