Faculty Handbook Listing of Committees
and 2005-2006 Committee Members
(current year listing here)

Please Note: This list does not include committees created by the student body; nevertheless, the student body plays an important role in the governance of Washington and Lee, as indicated by student membership on some of the committees listed here and by the authority which the Trustees have delegated to the student body to "determine the circumstances under which and the cause for which a student is to be dropped from the rolls of the University for matters involving violation of honor. In the fulfillment of this responsibility, the student body may create such student organizations and adopt such procedures as may be appropriate." (Taken from the By-laws of Washington and Lee University.) For further information on student body committees, see the Student Handbook, which is available from the Office of the Dean of Students. This list also does not include committees dealing solely with the School of Law.

For the purposes of this list, Washington and Lee committees have been divided into five categories: those committees created by the Board of Trustees; those committees which administer faculty responsibilities; those committees in which the administration asks members of the faculty to join with administrative personnel in making certain decisions; ad hoc committees created for a limited time for a particular purpose; and academic-program advisory committees. A current list of committee members is kept by the Office of the Dean of the College.

The first person named under each committee serves as the chair; all inquiries relating to committee business should be addressed to the chair.

The information on this page originates from the Provost's Office and the Faculty Handbook.

Advisory: 

The By-Laws of the University describe the Advisory Committee as follows: "To the end that the knowledge and views of the Faculty may be appropriately represented and understood in connection with certain important appointments, there shall be an Advisory Committee consisting of the Provost, the academic Deans and of six Faculty members selected from and by the undergraduate faculty and one Faculty member selected from and by the law faculty. The Board shall consult with the Committee in considering the selection of a President of the University. The President shall consult with the Committee in considering the selection of a Department Head or Dean and may consult with the Committee and with the appropriate Department Head or Dean in considering appointments to the Faculty.

When the Advisory Committee is dealing with undergraduate promotion and tenure review recommendations; reviewing undergraduate Glenn and R. E. Lee Grant proposals; and reviewing department head recommendations, it will function as an undergraduate committee. Its membership will include six undergraduate faculty members, who will be elected by the undergraduate faculty (two annually to serve three-year terms) and, ex officio, the Provost, the Dean of the College and the Dean of the Williams School of Commerce, Economics and Politics.

When the committee is dealing with undergraduate and law faculty leave proposals; consulting with the president re decanal appointments; recommending to the Board of Trustees candidates for honorary degrees; and consulting with the president on matters of University-wide importance where Faculty and decanal advice is needed, or other University matters, it will function as a University committee. Its membership will include the same six undergraduate faculty; one law faculty member, elected by the law faculty to serve a three-year term; and, ex officio, the Provost, the Dean of the College, the Dean of the Williams School of Commerce, Economics, and Politics, and the Dean of the School of Law."

Committee on Faculty Role in University Governance (ad hoc for 2005-2007)

The committee will make a thorough reassessment of the effectiveness of our present governance arrangement.. The question to be addressed, in short, is: what changes might be made to ensure the most productive role possible for faculty in university governance?

The Committee should examine the current role of the faculty in the governance of the university, evaluate its clarity and suitability to W&L’s current context and challenges, and make recommendations for any change it believes will improve governance. The overarching aim of the Committee should be to identify those measures for changing the faculty's role in university governance as will best advance overall institutional well-being. In so doing, it will likely need to consult with other parties, including the president, provost and academic deans, the dean of students, the Rector of the Board of Trustees, and Senior University Counsel.

Without limiting the range of issues pertaining to faculty governance that the committee might examine, at least the following issues should be specifically addressed:
• how should faculty representatives to meetings of the Board of Trustees be chosen, and what is their appropriate role in these meetings and in contributing to the work of the Trustees between meetings?
• should a University faculty senate be established to take on some of the responsibilities currently borne by the University faculty sitting as a committee of the whole?
• should a formal structure or process be established to enable annual evaluation of department heads, deans, and the provost by members of the faculty
• within each academic unit of the University - the College, the Williams School, and the Law School - how is responsibility for governing the unit best apportioned between the respective dean and faculty?
• what steps would insure that elections to faculty committees are taken more seriously?

In addition to suggesting what changes should be made, the Committee should also recommend how and when the University should implement the proposed changes.

The Committee shall consist entirely of faculty, with representatives from all three academic divisions. The President will appoint the members of the committee, as well as the faculty chairperson.
