- The committee may, by majority vote, accept, reject or request modifications to proposals to ensure that policies are academically sound, consistent with campus procedures, and all Title V regulations.
- Substitutions of elected committee members are limited to members on extended leave or sabbatical leave: replacement members shall serve until the elected member returns or until the term of the elected member expires.
