The function of the Summer Session Committee is to study and make recommendations concerning the Summer Session.

The committee consists of five or more faculty members from A&S&E, one of whom should be the chair of the Subcommittee on the European Center at Talloires; one undergraduate student designated by the TCU Senate; and one graduate student designated by the Graduate Student Council. The directors of summer session, or designee, and the dean of Undergraduate and Graduate Students, or designee, are ex officio members of this committee, without vote. All voting-eligible faculty members are able to serve on this committee; however, the majority of committee members should be tenured faculty members. Members are appointed to a five-year term

Committee members attend three committee meetings in the fall (October and November) to review course proposals for the upcoming summer sessions and to discuss issues of program, faculty compensation, graduate student teaching and compensation, organization, etc. The summer session director consults the chair and membership throughout the year on various single concerns as they come up, usually via email questions and polls. This committee is appropriate for tenure-track faculty members.
