Ad Hoc Committees

ASC ad hoc committees are created by the Executive Committee, which appoints members. These members need not be ASC representatives. After two years, an ASC ad hoc committee either ceases to function or becomes a standing committee, through action of the Amendments Committee. 

  • Ad Hoc Committee: Diversity and Belonging
  • Term end: Fall 2022
  • Responsibilities: The Diversity and Belonging Committee was created by the 2020-21 Executive Committee to help the Division of Diversity and Belonging carry out the division’s comprehensive strategic plan. This ad hoc committee is charged with working with campus partners to outline the duties and responsibilities of an ASC Diversity and Belonging Standing Committee, outline primary goals for the 2022-23 academic year and work through the ASC Amendments and Policies Committee to propose a recommendation to enact an official standing committee that will be established in August 2022; or, the recommendation to cease function.
