Faculty governance depends upon the active participation of all faculty members in the committee system. The committee system is the mechanism for determining and monitoring educational policies and for faculty involvement in certain aspects of undergraduate life. Please refer to the Organization of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences Dartmouth College (OFDC) which outlines the membership and functions of most of the committees and councils on which faculty members serve. On the Committee Preferences form, there are also links to brief paragraphs that describe the function and recent activities of most of the committees and councils. We hope that these summaries as well as the OFDC will aid you in your choice by acquainting you with the responsibilities allotted to each committee and council.

The COP looks closely at past and present service when determining nominations to fill vacancies. We also look at faculty who are not currently serving in order to distribute the responsibility of committee service more equitably, but we rely most heavily on preference selections.

If you do not complete the preferences form, we will assume that you are willing to serve on any of the committees or councils listed.
