Committees

PJHR committees serve to provide a valuable source of input for faculty and staff in the programming and direction of the Initiative. All meetings will be conducted using Roberts Rules of Order. Quorum requires 50 percent of the voting members to be present. Meetings and voting can be conducted virtually by choice of the chair of the request of at least three committee members.
    • Curriculum Committee: The Curriculum Committee is charged with oversight of the PJHR Certificate Program. The Committee evaluates all course proposals for inclusion in the Certificate and advises the Executive Director on modifications to the Program. The Committee also reviews all proposals regarding graduate education. The Curriculum Committee normally meets several times each semester. Meetings are called by the chair of the committee or at the request of at least three Committee members. 
    • Program Committee: The Program Committee is charged with reviewing program proposals (over a specified dollar limit) from internal and external sponsors. The Committee will evaluate proposals submitted through the PJHR online system and determine the relative value of the proposal and advise the Executive Director on whether the proposal should be funded. If a member has a proposal submitted to the Committee, they will recuse themselves from voting. The Program Committee normally meets several times each semester. Meetings are called by the chair of the committee or at the request of at least three Committee members. 
    • Research Committee: The Research Committee is charged with enhancing the research capacity of the Initiative and assisting faculty in research activities. The Committee will review all internal PJHR research grant proposals for various programs. If a member has applied for a PJHR research grant, they will recuse themselves from voting. The Committee will also advise the Executive Director on the scope and direction of PJHR research. The Research Committee normally meets several times each semester. Meetings are called by the chair of the committee or at the request of at least three Committee members.
