Fall 2018 Committees


The Board is excited to announce the committees for Fall 2018!

A few notes:

  • Process: Each Board liaison evaluated the committees for their particular committee with only the generated Application IDs (blind review). Every Board member then conducted a blind review of all the applications. We then opened a public comment period for DI, GEI, NM, and EOFs, with the name of the commenter being required only for comments about EOFs applicants. At that point, the Board conducted a full review of all the applications, complete with the name and relevant attached information (school, year, etc.) for each applicant. Please reach out to us at or on Facebook if you have any questions about your applicant or the process writ large.
  • Repeat applicants: In the interest of minimizing the extent to which committee members spread themselves thin, the Board ensured that an applicant would not serve on more than two committees, and that a committee member would not serve as the chair of more than one committee.
