Most of the work of the university is done through these committees. This is a wonderful expression of the collegial nature of the university.
It is essential that all members of the community participate fully in the committee structure. If you serve on a committee, you are a vital communication link between your committee and the other members of the university community. Please share your views with conviction at the meetings and report back to the larger community at appropriate moments.
I ask the chairs of the various committees to call the first meeting. If a committee elects its own chair, I ask the senior administrator to call the first meeting. Please forward the names of the elected chairs to Mary A. Gotzon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At the first meeting, please review the charge of the committee as enumerated in the Faculty Handbook. All members of the committee should understand the task and parameters of the committee’s work.
Thank you all for your vital participation in the life of our university.
– Fr. Bernie O’Connor, OSFS, President
