Policy Review Committee
Purpose:
The PCOSUW has as its mission “ensuring an atmosphere of equity, support, and balance” and as such we have created an ad hoc Equity Policy Review Subcommittee to engage in on-going reactive and proactive policy review to identify current policies that need revision as well as suggest new policies to implement that promote this mission of the PCOSUW.
Chair: Lynda Ransdell


Work Life Intergration Task Force
Purpose:
As an advisory body to the President's Commission on the Status of University Women (PCOSUW), the Work Life Integration Task Force is charged with proposing revisions to existing, and drafting proposed new, policies and procedures to address the work-life integration needs of faculty, staff and students at MSU-Bozeman.

The Task Force solicits ideas for revisions and new policies and procedures from a variety of sources, including but not limited to ADVANCE Project TRACS, the PCOSUW, Faculty Senate, Professional Council, Staff Senate and the Associated Students of MSU (ASMSU). The Task Force recommends revisions and new policies and procedures to the PCOSUW, which in turn may make recommendations to the President. Upon approval of the President, the Task Force then advocates for the adoption of the proposed revision or new policy or procedure through the appropriate channels at MSU.

The Task Force membership consists of representatives from administration, faculty, staff, students, Human Resources and other appropriate units.
