The ECU Staff Senate has a variety of standing sub-committees (shown below) that serve the senate in various areas. All members of the Staff Senate are expected to participate in a sub-committee. In addition to standing sub-committees listed below, special needs can arise, and there may be ad hoc committees appointed by the Executive Committee in order to work on special projects. As appropriate, any existing committees functioning at ECU may be incorporated into the committee structure of the Senate. The Associate Vice Chancellor of Human Resources will appoint ex-officio members to committees as he/she sees fit.
This committee exists to review and update the by-laws to remain consistent with the Senate actions as they are deemed necessary. This committee will receive resolutions and bring them to the floor for discussions and inclusion into the updated by-laws.
