The committee consists of the president of the ASDA, the president of the Dentistry College Council, four student members, one from each class, the Director of Student and Multicultural Affairs, the ASDA faculty advisor, and four full-time faculty members elected by the Faculty Assembly. The Committee elects the chairperson and vice chairperson from the four faculty members elected by the Faculty Assembly. The vice chairperson will become chairperson upon completion of the chairperson’s term.
Standing Committee Charge
As stated in the Constitution and Bylaws, this committee serves as a general forum to promote scholarship, wellness, motivation, professionalism, and extracurricular activities among the students and between the students and the faculty.
Additional Charge from the Dean for 2013–2014
The Student Affairs Committee should continue to take an active role in identification and discussions on current issues concerning students. The committee should meet at least quarterly to conduct its business to ensure satisfactory progress on tasks assigned to it.
As its first order of business, the committee should elect a chairperson and a vice chairperson. This year, I am asking the committee to oversee the efforts of the Wellness Advisory Committee. The Student Affairs Committee should work with the Wellness Advisory Committee to develop programs that enhance student life at UFCD.
I am asking the Student Affairs Committee to develop strategies to promote professional, productive relationships between students and faculty including a faculty/student, mentor/mentee program. The Student Affairs Committee should propose a plan for a student study/gathering area.
The committee may also want to develop and execute an assessment of “perceived student wellness.”
The committee should refer all committee action items to the Faculty Advisory Board (FAB) on an ongoing basis for FAB’s review, discussion and subsequent action, as needed.
Each standing faculty committee is charged with reviewing relevant outcome measures from the college strategic plan.
The committee should evaluate performance on these measures and when appropriate, action plans for improvement should be instituted using the Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycle. The PDCA is the college model for outcomes assessment and evaluation.
Individual Faculty Member Responsibilities
The Student Affairs Committee meets approximately 3 times per year for 1 to 1½ hours. Additionally, some project work is done outside of meetings. This past year, members of the committee (including students) were instrumental in preparing video vignettes for student learning related to ethical issues.
Time commitment: Minimum of 1½ hours per quarter for meetings plus additional time for project-based work.
Schedule of Meetings
The Student Affairs Committee meets from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. unless otherwise noted.
