Committees

The University of North Texas at Dallas (UNTD) values shared governance and seeks to involve faculty, staff, administrators, and students as part of this process, when appropriate and applicable. This list is intended to help assure effective rotation of representation for various groups, avoid vacancies and redundancies, and provide information to committee members and others about committee responsibilities and representation. For more information on University committees, please see Policy 4.001 Policy on Committees found on the UNTD Policy Manual webpage. Also on that webpage are templates and forms applicable to committees such as an agenda template, minutes template, request for new committee form, and the annual committee report template. All minutes should be emailed to minutes@untdallas.edu.
