The Summer Research Awards Committee shall be responsible for reviewing applications forthe Summer Research Awards, awards administered through the Office of Research and Faculty Development, and to present recommendations to the Vice Provost for Research and Graduate Education. The committee shall also address a research-specific issue and report back to the University Senate on an as needed basis.The Office of Research and Faculty Development provides the staffing for this committee.


Membership of the Summer Research Awards Committee is not fixed and traditionally consists of the Vice Provost for Research or designee, 8-10 research-active faculty, broadly representative of the faculty, who are themselves eligible to receive the award; plus a representative from the Research & Faculty Development Office (ex officio, non-voting).


The Summer Research Awards 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.
