• AASCU Spouse/Partner Planning Committee

    The Spouse/Partner Planning Committee is the pivotal steering body of the AASCU Spouse/Partner Program. Through its diverse make-up, the Committee provides the “thought leadership” for initiatives and topical programming of necessity and advises AASCU on the needs, wishes and expertise of spouses/partners. Members of the committee (including the chair and chair-elect) are proposed-in slate form-by the Spouse/Partner Nominating Committee and the slate is then ratified by all AASCU spouses/partners. Members each serve two-year terms, with half rotating off the committee each year. The Liaison to the Spouse/Partner Program and the Planning and Outreach Coordinator both serve as ex officio members of this group. The spouse/partner of the Chair of AASCU's Board of Directors serves on the Planning Committee as an ex officio member if they so choose.
