At UMass Amherst, joint task forces and ad hoc committees are sometimes established temporarily to review specific developments; they operate under the Faculty Senate.

Ad Hoc Committees

Ad hoc committees are established for a limited time and to address a specific issue. The Faculty Senate also often creates committees to monitor campus issues, provide recommendations on problems, and more. 

Learn more about how to establish an ad hoc committee or task force through the Faculty Senate in Section 4-4-2 of the Faculty Senate Bylaws.
