The function of the Student Life Committee (CSL) is to collaborate with the administration in the formulation of the policies and regulations that guide undergraduate life. The CSL's functions include, among other responsibilities, the duty to hear appeals by students who have been disciplined by the university, appeals of decisions handed down by the student judiciary committee, and review of changes to student governmental procedures and documents, including constitutional changes. The committee is also involved in choosing the winner of the Wendell Phillips Award.
The committee consists of seven or more faculty members, up to five elected undergraduate students, and one graduate student designated by the Graduate Student Council. Ex officio members without vote include the dean of Student Affairs or designee, the judicial affairs officer, the director of student activities, and the University Chaplain. All full-time faculty members are eligible to serve on this committee. Members are appointed to a five-year term.
Committee members attend monthly meetings. New members are expected to complete an orientation meeting with university counsel. As part of the process for choosing the Wendell Phillips Award recipient, committee members are expected to review applications and to attend the presentations of the finalists. Much of the committee work is handled by the committee chairs, which is jointly chaired by a student and a faculty member. Committee members may also be asked to serve on disciplinary hearing bodies. This committee is appropriate for tenure-track faculty members.
