Academic staff governance committees seek members

Each year the Academic Staff Nominating Committee is charged with finding
candidates to serve on more than forty campus committees. Committees span a
variety of interests including communications, compensation, awards,
diversity, student affairs, transportation, athletics, information
technology, and many more.

If you would like to be considered for current and future committee
openings, please complete the committee interest survey:

The survey provides a list of committees and links to more information.
Indicating your interest is not in any way binding. As seats open up on your
committees of interest, a member of the Nominating Committee may contact you
to further explore your potential participation.

Regular elections for standing committees of the Academic Staff Assembly
take place each spring. Regular appointments to other shared governance
committees are also made in the spring. Please note that not every committee
has openings for new members every year.

The following committees have immediate openings:

  • Academic Staff Communications Committee
  • Academic Staff Mentoring Committee

Committee participation at UW-Madison is a great way for academic staff
members to grow personally and professionally, to meet other staff outside
their units, to learn more about how things work at UW-Madison, and to have
a voice in campus issues. We won’t know of your interest in a committee
unless you tell us, so please fill out the survey.
