Committees at Ouachita
Each spring the Vice President for Academic Affairs convenes a nominating committee comprised of school representatives to compose a slate of faculty committee nominees. The slate of committee nominees is elected by majority vote of the faculty at a faculty meeting prior to the end of the spring semester. This covers the following standing committees as well as the Interdisciplinary Studies Committee. A term of service for any committee is three years.
Ouachita also has an Institutional Review Board that ensures protection of human subjects in research as required by federal, state, and local laws.
