Faculty Handbook Listing of Faculty Committees
and 1997-98 Committee Members
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.
The first person named under each committee serves as the chair;
all inquiries relating to committee business should be addressed to the chair.

STANDING COMMITTEES

For the purposes of this list, Washington and Lee committees have been divided into three categories: those committees created by the Board of Trustees, those committees which administer faculty responsibilities, and those committees in which the administration asks members of the faculty to join with administrative personnel in making certain decisions. A current list of committee members is kept by the Office of the Dean of the College.

COMMITTEES CREATED BY THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES

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 Deans of the college and schools, ex officio, 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 of persons 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 Dean of the College and the Dean of the 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 Dean of the College, the Dean of the School of Commerce, Economics and Politics, and the Dean of the School of Law."

The Board, on its own initiative or upon recommendation of the Committee, may from time to time grant such honorary degrees as it may deem proper." The university faculty has determined that its six elected undergraduate members to the Advisory Committee shall also serve as its six elected members on the Honorary Degrees Committee.

University Library Committee consists of nine university faculty members (appointed by the President), the University Librarian, and three student representatives appointed by the President upon nomination by the Student Body Executive Committee. It acts as an advisory board to the Librarian, the President, and the Board of Trustees on matters pertaining to the maintenance and development of the library. The problems the Committee usually considers concern public and technical services but may include other areas in which the Librarian seeks advice.
