Committee's Website

Mission Statement

To support the University’s “dedication to the personal development fundamental to the growth in wisdom and integrity of all who share its life,” and to meet the challenge of General Congregation 34 of the Society of Jesus “to listen carefully and courageously to the experience[s] of women” and to work in solidarity with “women in the struggle for a more just relationship between women and men,”

The CSW seeks to accomplish this mission by:

  • Raising awareness through communication with the University community regarding behaviors, actions, issues, policies, and procedures that impact the status of women;
  • Communicating and collaborating with other committees and organizations to provide support, advocacy, and information regarding women's issues;
  • Assisting the administration in identifying the concerns of women at the University that need study, and recommending ways to address the concerns of women at the University to the appropriate administrative offices

Charge: , The University Governance Council (the Council) plays an important role in governance at the University of Scranton.  Formed in response to concerns regarding lack of communication between the University's representative governing bodies, the Council serves as a coordinating structure to receive and distribute policy proposals to each of the three representative bodies. The group also provides a forum to ensure the three governing bodies - Faculty Senate, Staff Senate, and Student Government - have ample opportunity to discuss policy initiatives with one another and forward comments and/or recommendations to the President's Cabinet, the chief policy and decision‐making body of the University. The Council is also the primary conduit for policy initiatives coming from the Cabinet to the governing bodies.

The University Governance Council is comprised of representatives from each of the three representative governing bodies. These representatives are the four officers of the bodies or their designates; total membership on the Council shall not exceed 12 persons. In addition to this number, the Council has an administrative liaison to the Cabinet, the Vice President for Planning & CIO, the University administrator with responsibility for governance. The liaison is charged with carrying the Council's feedback on policy deliberations to the Cabinet, and conveying information from the Conference to the Council. The liaison serves as the convener of the Council, calling meetings according to the Council's schedule.
