Section 20. Special Committees
- If at any time the need for special
committee(s) should arise, the University Senate
may create such special committee(s) to study and
make recommendations to the Senate on any matter
which concerns the interest of the University, over
which the University Senate has jurisdiction, but
which does not come within the jurisdiction of any
standing committee. The Senate shall elect or
authorize the appointment of such special committee(s).
- Special committees shall be announced to the
Senate and the purpose and composition of each
committee shall be included in the minutes of the
Senate for the meeting if the appointment is interim.
When a special committee has completed its mission,
an announcement of its termination shall be made
at the next regular meeting of the Senate. No
special committee shall continue in existence more
than twelve (12) months unless its term is extended
by a majority vote of the Senate.
- Nothing in this section shall refute the University
President's power to appoint special or standing
committees as specified in Article II,
Section 1D, of the Statutes of Georgia State University.
