Membership: Updated May 9, 2019
Committee members are selected on the basis of one or more of the following:
- the Specific responsibilities related to their position (ex officio);
- their particular expertise, knowledge or interest relating to the responsibilities of the committee and/or the campus in general;
- to represent the interests of a particular constituent group.
In recognition of the importance of MSU's commitment to Shared Governance, MSU's dynamic participative governance processes actively solicit input, advice and perspective from all campus constituencies to inform the institution's administrative leadership regarding campus issues, policies, procedures that impact the direction of the institution. Therefore, in addition to the active participation in committee activities by each member, the responsibilities of committee members who represent a constituent group, and particularly those who represent an MSU governance body (e.g. Faculty Council, All Staff Council, ASMSU), include regular, timely reports to their governance body and dissemination of appropriate and relevant information to their constituents, as well as reciprocal solicitation of constituent group input regarding issues before the Committee.

Faculty Council and All Staff Council shall nominate candidates for the respective UFPB representatives and forward them to the President for appointment. ASMSU shall appoint an ASMSU representative.
