Faculty and P&A service on Senate committees

Why serve on a Senate committee?

Committees are the critical point at which University policies and decisions on intellectual property, tenure, grading, evaluation of instruction, the budget, allocation of indirect cost funds, athletics, electronic privacy, faculty salaries, secrecy in research, health insurance, and many other matters important to the University community are debated and resolved.
