RSCC Policy GA-25-01; Standing Committees

Roane State Community College
Policy Number: GA-25-01
Subject: Standing Committees

Active participation in committee work is considered part of the responsibility of all members of the institution, since an institution cannot operate effectively without the planning and ideas of students, faculty, and other staff.

The president appoints standing committees in the fall term to serve for one academic year (see list below). These appointments are based on the employee's request and the recommendations of the vice president or at the direction of the president. Generally, part-time faculty are not appointed as voting members of standing committees. Professional staff and students of the college are asked to serve on certain committees. All standing committees are advisory. Recommendations and reports of all committees are made known to the college community as relevance requires.

The chairperson of each committee is appointed by the president to preside for one academic year. The duties of the chairperson are to initiate, formulate, and report to the president suggestions and recommendations discussed by the committee. Meetings of all committees should be held on a regular basis. The president and other executive officers will attempt to be available for committee meetings, if and when a committee chairperson requests.
