Major University policy issues are routed through University Policy Committees whose members are appointed by the University Coordinating Committee.
The University Policy Committees are the final collaborative bodies with the authority to formulate and recommend new University policy and major strategic change, and to review significant change in existing policy.
The governance system is comprised of a meta committee, six policy committees and two standing committees.
Task forces are temporary ad hoc committees formed to address specific policy issues. Advisory committees are formed to provide advice or feedback to administrators. They are usually not temporary committees.
