For more information on any of the Standing Committees of the Academic Senate, please review the committees page.

Please know that the Committee on Committees (ConC) will do its best to accommodate your choices for Academic Senate service, although in times of great need, you may be asked to serve on a committee that you did not indicate preference for. We will keep your choices on file for the academic year, and, should your expertise be needed, a member of ConC will contact you if vacancies occur. If your choices change within this academic year, please feel free to submit a new entry.

Serving ON a Standing Committee

Participation as a member of a Senate Standing Committee provides an opportunity to stay informed, advise, and set policy directions at UCLA.

From faculty welfare, child care, retirement, and capital programs, to undergraduate and graduate curricula, Senate members discuss, debate, and influence the direction of UCLA on issues brought to the committees from across campus.

For a broader perspective at UCLA, consider representing your department or program within the LgA.  LgA representatives review and vote on campuswide policies, bylaw changes, and new programs.

You can voice your department's opinion on these proposals and state how a proposal will impact you and your constituency.

You will also be expected to report back to your department on discussions and actions of the LgA.


For an even broader perspective of the UC system, consider representing UCLA on the systemwide Academic Assembly, a representative body made up of Senate faculty from all ten campuses.

There are more then twenty other systemwide committees as well, each with at least one representative from UCLA.
