Teaching and Learning Committee
Shall assess and identify the current needs for CHHS support to enhance teaching opportunities and skills of the faculty, offer recommendations to the dean, and, in some cases, coordinate professional development, e.g., teaching colloquia, workshops focused on preparing teaching portfolios, etc. In addition, the committee shall review faculty applications for the Exemplary Teacher Award, and, based on the relative merit of the materials, shall recommend one recipient to the dean.

The Professional Ethics Committee (Faculty Senate)
The Faculty Handbook reads: Each college and Regional Campus will have a standing Professional Ethics Committee consisting of six faculty members in the college or regional campus unless it is necessary to supplement the Committee by faculty from other colleges or regional campuses. At least four of the six faculty must be tenured Group I faculty. The other two may be selected from among the untenured Group I or the Group II faculty. Three of the six members of the College Professional Ethics Committee are selected by the faculty senators from that college or regional campus while the remaining three are appointed by the Dean of the College or Regional Campus. The Chair of the Committee will be appointed by the Dean from among the Group I faculty on the Committee. The term length for members on the College Professional Ethics Committee will be three years and service is restricted to two successive terms. Initial appointments will be staggered so that each year the senators from the college or regional campus and the Dean will each need to select a new Committee member. The College Professional Ethics Committee will be provided access to appropriate university resources to assist it in carrying out its investigations.

Committee on Committees
Shall review each committee’s structure and function at least every three years and advise the dean of any recommended changes.
