3335-5-48 Standing and special committees of the senate.

(A) The senate may establish such standing and special committees as it deems necessary or desirable.

(1) The standing committees of the senate are those committees defined in rules 3335-5-48.1 to 3335-5- 48.18 of the Administrative Code.

(2) A special committee is one established to carry out a specified task, at the completion of which it automatically ceases to exist.

(B) Membership.

(1) All standing and special committees of the senate shall include at least one faculty member of the senate.

(2) Unless otherwise specified by the rules, or by the senate, the president shall appoint members of the administration; the council of graduate students, the inter-professional council, the undergraduate student government, and the faculty council shall select members of their own constituency using procedures adopted by their respective bodies.

(3) Terms of service.

(a) Faculty members shall serve three-year terms and are eligible for immediate reappointment to a second term. Following that they are ineligible for reappointment until one full year has elapsed. Faculty members may not serve as chair of an individual committee for more than three successive years.

(b) Unless otherwise specified by the rules, student members shall serve one-year terms and be eligible for reappointment.

(c) Appointed administration members shall serve two-year terms and shall not be eligible for immediate reappointment until one full year has elapsed unless they have served less than two-thirds of a full term.

(d) Multiyear terms shall be staggered so that approximately equal proportions of the number of members retire from the committee each year.

(4) Student alternates.

Unless otherwise designated by rule, graduate, inter-professional and undergraduate student members of standing and special committees of the senate may have an alternate. The alternate shall be selected from the same area of representation as the original appointment. Student members shall advise the chair of the alternate's name prior to the meeting in which the member will be absent. The chair has responsibility for recording correct voting status. If the member has voting status, the alternate may vote in the event of the member's absence. If the member has speech and debate privileges, the alternate shall retain these privileges in the member's absence. Whenever possible, potential alternates will be identified by appointing authority at the beginning of the academic year.

(C) Standing and special committees are also governed by the provisions of rule 3335-5-46 of the Administrative Code.
