Faculty and staff input on institutional policies and procedures is essential to the overall governance of the University. For this reason, standing committees comprised of faculty (academic, research and professional faculty) and classified employees are formed annually to address topics and issues of interest. Committee participation is a beneficial staff development opportunity that increases department and unit visibility and supports the development of our university. In addition, promotion and tenure expectations require faculty to perform appropriate service that contributes to the effectiveness of their units, colleges, the University and of their professions. Participation also offers an opportunity to become acquainted with others throughout the OSU community.

On behalf of the university, I invite you to volunteer for committee service by completing the online form. This information will be provided to the various offices involved in making committee selections. Although we cannot guarantee membership on the committee of your choice, we will do everything possible to make use of your talents. Please complete the online form only, and do not send additional materials such as vitae, etc. 

You may preview the committees available to both classified employees and faculty (academic, research and professional faculty) prior to accessing the online form. Faculty may select up to three groups for both Faculty Senate committees (Group A) and University committees (Groups B-G), for a total of six choices, in addition to Group H where you may indicate a particular area of interest. Please note that many of the committees and councils have an associated link. If a committee or council in which you are interested has such a link, you are encouraged to review the Standing Rules/charge to ensure that this group does what you are expecting and that you are eligible to serve. Some committee and council entries also provide information related to meeting frequency and required training; training need not be accomplished prior to being appointed. 

If you wish to resign from current committee membership, please email caitlin.calascibetta@oregonstate.edu and include your name, the name of the committee from which you wish to resign and your effective date of resignation.

Thank you for your willingness to participate in shared governance.

The University of Oklahoma is situated on the traditional home of the “Hasinais” Caddo Nation and “Kirikirʔi:s” Wichita & Affiliated Tribes. This territory once also served as a hunting ground, trade exchange point, and migration route for the Apache, Comanche, Kiowa and Osage nations. We seek to honor and uplift the history, narratives, and lived realities of these Indigenous people and the communities who have formed connections in this space.

UC Davis has an open faculty position for a chemist that may be very attractive to some of your students or postdocs.  The Department of Viticulture and Enology, the top “wine” department globally, is looking for a chemist.  This is a chance for someone who wants to do applied chemistry on a very challenging but rewarding topic.  The Department hopes to attract someone who can bring some new technology to the world of wine chemistry.  The position might be best described as a natural product chemist, but with applications that include flavor and stability, but with environmental inputs, e.g. weather effects the composition of grapes, and thus the flavor of the resulting wine. Collaborations with microbiologists, plant physiologists, food engineers and sensory scientists are expected and encouraged.  

I would appreciate it if you could pass this position description along to students and postdocs in your Department who are in the job market.  The deadline for full consideration is April 1, 2024
