FACULTY COMMITTEE on ADMINISTRATIVE APPOINTMENTS
and the Distinguished Selection Committee

The FCAA is the committee of shared governace which advises the president on the selection of administrative officers at the level of Vice President.  It frequently operates as a subgroup of the search committee convened for the specific position.  The FCAA is described in the Bylaws of the Constitution of the Faculty, Article V, Section 3.

The Distinguished Selection Committee is not specifically named in the Faculty Constitution, but is used here to refer to the group described in the Bylaws of the Constitution of the Faculty,  Article V, Section 2 and Article V, Section 3 which primarily comprises the faculty of Distinguished rank.  Its function is to select the FCAA and similar groups, and thus it is included on this page.
