The CPUC, which first met in October 1969, has the authority, according to its charter, "to consider and investigate any question of University policy, any aspect of the governing of the University and any general issue related to the welfare of the University; and to make recommendations regarding any such matters to the appropriate decision-making bodies of the University or to the appropriate officers of the University."
Membership includes six senior officers of the University, 15 faculty members, 12 undergraduates, six graduate students, four alumni and seven staff members. The complete list of members is available on the CPUC website.
Meetings are presided over by Tilghman. The proposed meeting dates for the rest of the year are Nov. 10, Dec. 8, Feb. 9, March 30 and May 4. All are at 4:30 p.m.
