Coordinator: Diana Allos (dallos@umd.edu)
Materials (for committee members only)

The Elections, Representation & Governance (ERG) Committee is responsible for preserving the principles of shared governance for the Senate and the University as a whole. The committee reviews the plans of organization for the colleges, schools, and other units on campus, as well as makes any appropriate recommendations for improvement of the overall operation of the Senate. Additionally, it is the ERG Committee's responsibility to review the apportionments for the various constituencies of the Senate to help ensure a proper balance of representation. All changes to the Senate Bylaws and Plan of Organization must go through the ERG Committee.

The committee consists of an appointed presiding officer; six faculty members; one exempt staff member; one non-exempt staff member; two undergraduate and two graduate students; and representatives of the Director of Human Resources and the Associate Vice President for Institutional Research, Planning, and Assessment.
