There are four types of committees. Each type serves a distinct purpose for the College. The committees all respond to the mission of the College. Committee membership and work fits into the area of service (service, scholarship, teaching) at Texas Tech. Committee work, along with other service work, makes up 1/3 of a faculty member’s responsibility to the College and University. Each committee page can be set up to hold minutes, members, and working documents. See Sample Committee as a guide.

Program Committees

Introduce and refine issues pertaining to a particular program within the College. The program committees are intended to move the College forward. They assist the college in meeting its goals and adhering to its mission statement. These programs include: LPMD, Historic Preservation, Visualization and Community Design. Each committee is composed of all faculty members associated with that program plus two rotating faculty –at-large. Decisions are made on the basis of all attending committee members. Program Committees shall meet once a month.

Service Committees

All faculty members serve on at least one service committee. Service committees fall under one of two types: administrative or task. Administrative service committees fall under the authority of the administration. For example, the Graduate Admissions Committee is chaired by an administrator who can then report back to the Dean’s Council (Dean, Associate Dean of Research, Associate Dean of Academics and Chair of Instruction). The task service committees are chaired by a faculty member. Membership on these committees would normally be for two years with one member designated as chair-elect. The membership is determined by rotation, but faculty members can request participation on the committee assignment form distributed each year. These committees are made up of a combination of faculty and administrative members. They serve to accomplish certain aspects of college life. Service Committees shall meet once a month. (Terms expire August 31 of the year listed in parenthesis.)

The faculty will rotate through the committees every two years. Advisory Committees shall meet once a month. (Terms expire August 31 of the year listed in parenthesis.)
