The Committee also responds to various other requests for nominations or comments on nominations to committees. The following summarizes Committee activities during its 2004-2005 term.

Following Senate action, vacancies were filled on Standing Committees of the Senate and the MEC (CC.05.03), Standing Committees and SURSMAC (CC.05.04), Standing Committees (CC.05.05), and the University Senates Conference (CC.05.09). Nominations for Chair/Vice-Chair of SEC were submitted via e-mail for Senate approval. Nominations for Membership on University Senates Conference (CC.06.01), and for 2005-06 standing committees and on the Military Education Council (CC.06.02) were submitted for approval at the organizational meeting of the 2005-06 Senate.

Governing and Advisory Bodies. The Committee submitted CC.05.07 for Senate approval of nominees to the Athletic Board. As a consequence of continuing administrative review of appropriate strategies for program evaluation, nominations to membership on COPE were not required.

Representatives to Other Bodies. No other nominations for service were made aside from those for the Military Education Council (see above).

Other Committees. Faculty were recommended to the Chancellor for appointment to the Campus Committee on Commencement; to the Provost for the Criminal History Appeals Committee; as well as to the Campus Grievance Procedures Task Force and NCAA Review Committee; to University Senates Conference for the Central Administration Budget and University Benefits Study Committee; and for the Campus Promotion and Tenure Committee, nominations were submitted to SEC for review prior to consultation between the SEC Chair and the Provost.

The Committee on Committees gratefully acknowledges the work of its Secretary, Diana Morris, and Clerk of the Senate Robert Damrau for their considerable effort in producing the numerous reports, mailings, and lists that have so effectively facilitated the work of the Committee.
