Committee Memberships

Staff and faculty in the Library have many opportunities for service and leadership, and to participate in governance, through work on Campus and System-wide committees. Committee memberships and charges are detailed below. Library staff and faculty can also view Library Committees on our intranet.

Academic Senate Committees

Librarians serving on the Academic Senate include at least one tenured or tenure-track librarian, and a lecturer librarian, all elected following the Faculty Constitution. Librarians serving on the Academic Senate are elected by Library Faculty, and serve a three-year term. In addition, each Senator is appointed annually by the Executive Committee to serve on a Standing Committee.
