Standing Committee Charge

As stated in the College of Dentistry’s Constitution and Bylaws, it is the responsibility of this committee to monitor the governance of the college and to insure that the principals of shared governance are being followed.  This committee monitors and assesses the functioning of all components of the colleges’ governance system and reports their findings with recommendations annually to the FAB.  The committee is responsible for the review of the College’s Constitution and Bylaws annually for its utilization, applicability, and appropriateness to the progressive management of the college.  The committee works in conjunction with the dean to review all the standing committees of the Faculty Assembly, specify their responsibilities, monitor their productivity and assess the rules and regulations governing their operations.
