The following information is taken from Motion
US00/01-6 which revises the charges to the standing University Committees.
DISTINGUISHED TEACHING AWARDS COMMITTEE
CHARGE & RESPONSIBILITIES:
The Distinguished Teaching Award Committee shall be responsible for
the screening, investigation and recommendation of candidates to receive
any Campus-wide teaching awards including, but not limited to, the Ersted
Award for Distinguished Teaching and the Thomas F. Herman Faculty Achievement
Award for Distinguished Teaching. The Office of Academic Affairs
provides the staffing for this committee.
Membership of the Distinguished Teaching Award Committee is fixed and
consists of: at least 4 and not more than 8 officers of instruction broadly representative
of the faculty at-large, 1 student, and the Senior Vice Provost for Academic
Affairs (ex officio, non-voting).
The Distinguished Teaching Award Committee shall report to the University
Senate. At a minimum this report shall be in the form of an annual written
report submitted by the Committee Chair to the Secretary of the University
Senate no later than the final University Senate meeting in May. The committee
shall also make additional written or oral reports to the Senate as necessary.
See also US01/02-4
which is a process for filling vacancies on elected committees:
7.1 Since 1991-92, all non-elected committees established by faculty legislation
are appointed by the Committee on Committees, a committee appointed by
the University Senate. The Secretary of the Faculty shall coordinate the
elections of faculty to elective committees. The secretary shall arrange
for the filling of vacancies on elected committees and councils by notifying
the next eligible candidate, determined in descending order of the number
of votes received in the most recent election for the relevant committee
or council. If no eligible candidate is available to fill the vacancy,
the Senate Executive Committee, with advice and recommendations from the
Committee on Committees, shall appoint an eligible faculty member to fill
the vacancy until the next regular election cycle. Filling a vacancy shall
not preclude the appointee from standing for election to the same committee
or council during the next election cycle if eligible.
Student members not available.
