The President’s Commission on Women is constituted of RIT faculty, staff and students. Each academic college, library and administrative unit (Vice Presidential level with more than 50 staff members) will collect nominations for Commission membership from faculty, staff, and administrators. Nominees should be committed to accomplishing the work of the Commission and must be available for meetings. Each college and library can select and forward to the Commission the names of two nominees and each administrative unit can nominate one person. The Membership Committee is responsible for reviewing each pair of nominees from the colleges and library, identifying one nominee for membership and one nominee for alternate membership. The Membership Committee will verify the willingness and availability of each nominee to serve as members of the Commission. Alternate members serve in absence of the corresponding members and may serve on committees.
The Council of Student Government has an ex officio appointment for one student who will represent the student body at RIT. The President, Provosts, and Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion hold ex officio memberships. The membership committee may recommend ex officio membership to others as necessary for the functions of the Commission
The Membership Committee will present an annual slate of nominees to the Commission for approval. This slate of nominees should allow one-third of the membership to rotate off each year.
