Membership: Updated May 19, 2020
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 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 and procedures that impact the direction of the institution. Therefore, in addition to the active participation in committee activities by each member, the responsibilities of the committee members who represent a constituent group and particularly those who represent an MSU governance body (e.g. Faculty Senate, Professional Council, Staff Senate, ASMSU), include regular and 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.
The Committee is comprised of members that represent the campus constituency, including ex official members, and representation from the greater university community. Official committee activities requires a quorum of 2/3 of the current membership, including proxies.
The College Dean shall appoint a Faculty Member to the Classroom Committee upon the request of the Committee.
Ex Officio Members
The Ex Officio members may choose to designate a regular representative to attend in their stead and exercise voting rights; however, the Ex Officio member may choose to attend any meeting in place of their designee, and may exercise their voting right. Each member shall have only one regular vote (i.e. by either ex officio or designee).
Length of Term
Appointed members serve a three-year term, with no limit to the number of terms. (Terms for ASMSU representation will accommodate ASMSU practices).
