Call for Applications, Staff Member for Speech and Expression Advisory Committee - Due November 22, 2019

Speech and Expression Advisory Committee

Appointment Requirements: Three (3) staff-at-large members

Term: Two (2) years 

Charge: DePaul University has established the Guiding Principles for Speech and Expression at DePaul University.

The Guiding Principles are used to inform the application of university policies and procedures in specific situations.  DePaul has established a Speech and Expression Advisory Committee (SEAC). SEAC increases consistency as to how various policies and procedures are aligned with the Guiding Principles by providing a forum through which a standing group of community representatives routinely engages with the Guiding Principles.

Time commitment: SEAC will meet 10 hours a quarter for a total of 30 hours per academic year.  Smaller groups will meet more frequently to carry out the responsibilities of SEAC to educate, consult, and review policy.  

If you are interested in participating in this opportunity, please email staffcouncil@depaul.edu with a brief interest statement addressing the following information:
  • Your name, role, and department
  • The number of years you’ve been in the college and at DePaul University
