School Committees

In addition to the established committees represented in the membership list linked below, special committees may be convened as necessary.

Please see below for additional information on the following school committees:

Departmental Committees

Members of each department are expected to attend departmental faculty meetings and to carry out committee work that may be assigned, including prospective student auditioning/interviewing committees, student advising, departmental curriculum review/revision committees, and special project development.

Faculty Search and Screen Committees

Ultimate responsibility for the appointment of new faculty in the school lies with the Dean. The active participation of faculty members who know the field, however, is crucial to making good appointments. Search and screen committees usually consist of departmental faculty and a student representative. Typically, the chair of the recruiting department will head the committee and coordinate the committee's work with the Office of the Executive Associate Dean.
