The subcommittee may also survey matters of external university governance related to government policy. In addition, the subcommittee shall assist members who wish to organize to strengthen faculty voice and initiative on bodies such as Senate and faculty councils, which may include assisting in the formation of independent faculty caucuses on these bodies, advising on the strengthening of collegial governance procedures and promoting equity in the functioning of governance bodies at the University.
