The UCC shall appoint the members of the Faculty Affairs Committee. Membership should be broadly constituted to adequately represent a broad spectrum of perspectives, for example, disciplinary divisions within the University, an emphasis on teaching, scholarship and creative works, the University's graduate and undergraduate character, the Catholic and Jesuit tradition, and other perspectives, experiences, or expertise that may assist the Committee in its deliberations.

The Provost will serve on the Faculty Affairs Committee or appoint a designate to serve on that Committee to provide an administrative perspective. The Provost will also be available for consultation and collaboration with the committee as necessary throughout their deliberations.

Committee members shall serve staggered three-year terms, renewable once.
