(Last Modified on August 3, 2016) Report a broken link

The BoR of the University System of Georgia has established an Advisory committee for each academic discipline and administrative function. The purpose of these committees is to advise the BoR on proposed new policies and policy changes. The committees are also instrumental in the planning and execution of policy implementation. These committees meet at least annually with a USG liaison present to hear committee recommendations and to discuss the plans of the University System. The USG liaison is also the principal contact to the committee throughout the year. Membership of these committees is composed of faculty and staff recommended by the Vice President for Academic Affairs and Vice President for Student Affairs from each institution.

The committee selects a chair who serves a term determined by the committee’s by-laws.
