Dr. E has been appointed to the University Committee on Academic Governance. This committee (from the handbook):
serves as the nominating committee for governance positions, for at-large steering committee members, UCGA members, and advisory committees. It is responsible for preparing motions for submission of governance by-law updates, monitoring the by-laws to be sure they are current, reviewing college by-laws and makes recommendations regarding University Council and Faculty Senate election procedures.
