U faculty: Nominate. Participate. Invigorate.

Help shape the policies that govern the U by submitting your interest in a university committee by March 14.

Do you want to help shape policies governing the University of Utah? This is your chance to submit your interest by filling out the annual Faculty Committee Interest form. The Senate Personnel & Elections Committee (P&E) is charged with nominating faculty members to serve on dozens of university and senate committees that address issues such as academic policy, diversity, academic freedom and more. Upcoming vacancies on multiple committees include the University Research Committee, Senate Advisory Committee on IT, Athletics Advisory Council, Senate Committee on Academic Freedom and Faculty Rights, Senate Advisory Committee on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion and many more listed below.

The P&E Committee nominates faculty for each senate and university committee vacancy. Membership on senate committees is then decided by election through the Academic Senate. Appointment to university committees is made by President Taylor Randall from a candidate list submitted by P&E.

Chair Dale Larsen reports that there are 81 faculty and 11 staff vacancies on 21 different committees that need to be filled for the next academic year. Below are the committees with vacancies and the descriptions of each.
