Thank you for your interest in serving on a university committee! University committees are an important way for students to have a say in university processes. The university is currently looking to fill the following committees with undergraduates:
Discrimination and Harassment Hearing Committee
The purpose of the Discrimination and Harassment Hearing Committee is a standing administrative hearing committee formed to hear complaints of discrimination or harassment brought against faculty members pursuant to the University’s Policy on Discrimination and Harassment. Complaints to this committee must involve allegations of discrimination or harassment based on race, color, age, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, veteran status, disability or genetic information. Appointed students are required to go through training. This committee meets on an “as needed” basis.
Holocaust Memorial Lecture Committee
The Committee’s purpose is to make recommendations concerning a speaker for the University’s annual lecture, inaugurated in 1989 by then-Chancellor William H. Danforth to commemorate the Holocaust and to address its broader implications for other instances of systematic persecution and mass murder. The lecture is part of the Assembly Series. This committee meets about 1x/year.
University Policy and Practice Affecting Students With Disabilities
The purpose of the committee is to advise the staff of the Disability Resource Center and Facilities Planning and Management regarding Danforth Campus policies and practices affecting students with disabilities and to make recommendations related to grievances brought by students with disabilities or other concerned parties. This committee meets on an “as needed” basis.
