An important branch of Stanford University, University Committees form a very powerful instrument for allowing students' voices to be heard at the administrative level. The Board of Trustees, the Academic Council, the Provost, the President, the Dean of the School of Humanities and Sciences, the Dean of Student Affairs, and the Chief Information Officer convene over 40 committees for yearlong terms to address a variety of issues affecting all walks of student life. 

Students that are nominated by the ASSU Nominations Commission to serve on University Committees work together with faculty, administrators, alumni, and trustees to enhance the welfare of the Stanford community as a whole. Sitting as a member can therefore be a very rewarding experience and an excellent opportunity to voice your opinions and subsequently contribute to the community.
