Whereas, The Faculty Senate represents the whole of the Faculty including the caucuses of the College of Allied Health Professions, the College of Medicine and the College of Nursing; and

Whereas, The Faculty Senate has recently added a new caucus comprised of faculty from the Mitchell Cancer Institute; and

Whereas, The Faculty Senate currently has no standing or ad hoc committees representing the Faculty with respect to the Medical and Health Sciences, Heath Care delivery or the University of South Alabama Health System; therefore

Resolved, The Faculty Senate authorizes the formation of an Ad Hoc Health Affairs Committee with the charge and description as given below:

 

Ad Hoc Health Affairs Committee: This Committee represents the faculty in matters related to the Health and Medical Sciences, Health Care delivery and the University of South Alabama Health System.

This committee will be charged to serve for one year, after which the Faculty Senate will vote on its status as a Standing Committee.  The committee will be comprised of any Faculty Senator who wishes to serve on this ad hoc committee.
