University Committees and Teams

 Established by the Office of the President, participation on University Committees is accomplished by a recommendation to the President by the Faculty Assembly, Faculty Senate, Staff Council, Student Government Association, or the Executive Committee. Committees and Teams are detailed in Administrative Policy Manual sections 1.07 and 1.08.

The statement on University Governance is included in Section 1.11 of the Administrative Policy Manual and includes guidelines for University Committees and Teams as well as Faculty Assembly and Faculty Senate Councils. Section 1.07 also includes information about each working group at Sul Ross State University.

From APM 1.07: “By September 30 of each year, the Chair of each Committee or Team will forward an annual report of the group’s activities for the past academic year to the President of the University. All Committees, Teams, and Councils will be posted on the University Governance web page.”
