UTHC Steering Committee

The Steering Committee of the UT Humanities Center is the central faculty advisory board reporting to the Director of the Center. It formulates policy advisory to the Director, addresses issues of funding, and may oversee or approve the decisions of other committees. The Steering Committee also advises the Director on establishing priorities for how the UTHC can best serve the university and community. Membership appointments are for tenured or tenure-stream research faculty who will serve a term of two academic calendar years.
