of policy that influence the teaching process, including (1) teaching effectiveness
and efficiency, (2) support, (3) dissemination of information, (4) encouragement

in determining appropriate actions and positions to be taken in support
of the advancement of teaching. In addition, the Committee shall serve in

the Committee shall participate in the selection of the Elizabeth P. Ritchie

Faculty, three Students, one of whom must be a graduate student and one
of whom must be an undergraduate student, and the Provost and Executive
