The Council does much of its work through standing and elected committees. Committees review proposals and develop policies that the Council will vote on, which means committee members have the opportunity to shape what will be considered by the full Council on a wide range of issues. The Council rarely acts on an issue without first considering that issue in committee.
Where the heavy lifting happens
Serving on a BFC committee is a great opportunity to represent your school on issues that impact the entire campus. In addition, you broaden your outlook about how other units operate and extend your network with colleagues from across campus.Sameer Patil, Informatics
How to volunteer
The BFC asks for committee volunteers in the spring and appointments are made throughout the summer. Even if you have served on a particular committee in the past, you are encouraged to complete the form to inform the Nomination Committee of your continued interest in that committee.
The more you know
Before volunteering for a committee, be sure to familiarize yourself with the committees and their work. A full listing of the standing, elected and campus committees, including their charges, are available in the committee section.
To get a sense of the committee's work, read the committee agendas and minutes, and check out the legislation currently under consideration by the Council and its committees.
