Members of each department are expected to attend departmental faculty meetings and to carry out committee work that may be assigned, including prospective student auditioning/interviewing committees, student advising, departmental curriculum review/revision committees, and special project development.

School of Music Council  (valid log-in required for website)

The School of Music Council is the elected faculty governance body of the school. Council membership includes the chair or other elected representative from each department, together with the school administrators and two student representatives. A few smaller departments share a representative on a rotating basis. The Council acts on policy concerning programs and curriculum of the school and also sets goals for long-range development. For details concerning the responsibilities of the School of Music Council, please see Faculty Governance.

Faculty Search and Screen Committees

Ultimate responsibility for the appointment of new faculty in the school lies with the Dean. The active participation of faculty members who know the field, however, is crucial to making good appointments. Search and screen committees usually consist of departmental faculty and a student representative. Typically, the chair of the recruiting department will head the committee and coordinate the committee's work with the Office of the Executive Associate Dean.
