The Committee on Committees is responsible for the identification and recruitment of individuals for service on Senate and University committees and councils. The committee is also responsible for the ongoing assessment of the effectiveness of committees. The Committee on Committees meets at the end of the spring semester to individually review all standing Senate committee volunteers and their statements. The committee endeavors to create balanced committee memberships, representing a variety of colleges, disciplines, and constituencies. The committee is also responsible for recruiting outgoing Senators to run for the Nominations Committee each December.

The Committee on Committees is chaired by the Chair-Elect of the Senate. The voting membership also includes six faculty members, with no more than one from any college, elected by faculty Senators; two staff members elected by staff Senators; and two students elected by student Senators. The members of the committee are elected by the Senate at the annual transition meeting each May.
