Committee Members


One person from each department appointed by the department chair, the associate dean for professional education, and two student representatives appointed by the Student Coordinating Committee. Because a CEP member represents the faculty of her/his respective department, the department chair should appoint a CEP member based on the member’s qualifications as a representative of the department’s faculty. The CEP member is responsible for bringing pertinent CEP information to the faculty in her/his respective department and for carrying out CEP assignments within the department. Several administrators participate in CEP meetings and activities as nonvoting members.
