There’s still time for UI staff members to apply to participate as a member of a UI committee, but the clock is ticking! The application period runs through midnight, March 15.

All full-time or part-time UI staff members are eligible to serve on these committees. Committee terms are three-year appointments from September 1, 2019 through August 31, 2022, except for the Presidential Committee on Athletics, which is a five-year term from September 1, 2019 through August 31, 2024.  You can apply for more than one committee.

Committee service will require release time from your normal duties. Before applying, you must discuss with your supervisor your desire to serve on a charter committee. To apply, fill out this Qualtrics survey: https://uiowa.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_cDaBznKtocOe1W5
