The Plan of Organization Review Committee (PORC) is charged with conducting a thorough review of the University's Plan of Organization. Any proposed revisions must be approved by a majority vote of the University Senate and submitted to an institution-wide referendum. Passage of revisions on an institution-wide referendum require a majority of the votes cast within each of two of three major constituencies. Final approval of the revised Plan lies with the President of the University.
The Plan of Organization Review Committee is elected by the University Senate. Membership includes one representative faculty member from each College, School, and the Libary. In addition, at least two University-wide administrators, two undergraduate students, two graduate students, and two staff members shall serve on the committee.
