The Governance subcommittee is responsible for overseeing USAC bylaws and facilitating the appointment of a staff representative on all Senate and university-wide committees.  The committee also partners with Human Resources to score the staff career development grant applications.

Members of the Committee include Jennifer Elliott, Chair, Annie Bingman Vice-Chair, Holly Davis, Sherri Hall, Casey Henceroth, and Jason Homan.  Our work for 2022 will be focused on: (1) staff career development grants; (2) staff senator elections; and (3) updating various documents such as the operations manual and different scoring rubrics.

The members of the Governance subcommittees work to make sure processes for elections to various university committees is done in a manner that is fair and thoroughly reviews the application details of the members.  The Governance subcommittee keeps track of the many committees where staff are represented and run the processes for applications and appointments to these committees.  The Governance subcommittee also receives reports from those that serve on these committees and brings relevant topics to the full committee.

The work done by this subcommittee involves attention to detail, being organized, and having a sense of humor along the way.  We look forward to finishing out the fiscal year strong and are looking forward to staff career development grants reviews this winter and staff senator elections in the spring.
