Membership in the CCSW is open to all faculty, staff, and students who reflect diversity in:
- Academic units
- University departments
- Support services
Members shall be appointed by the chancellor upon recommendation from the Commission for equal distribution of one- and two- year terms. Students, staff, and faculty interested in joining must first complete a membership application for consideration.
The membership shall include individuals equally representing faculty, staff and students, who reflect diversity in culture, age, gender, academic units, university departments, and support services.
Members shall be appointed by the chancellor upon recommendation from the Commission for one or two year terms, from July 1 - June 30. A member shall have the opportunity to serve consecutive terms but must reapply for a position on the Commission.
Members will be approved by a majority vote of CCSW members, either at a regularly scheduled meeting or through electronic communications.
If selection takes place at a regularly scheduled meeting, a quorum of five members must be present. If selection takes place through electronic communication, the proposed new roster shall be distributed electronically, and a quorum of five members must respond.
