The Selection of CAP Members

Members of the Council on Academic Personnel (CAP) are selected by the Academic Senate’s Committee on Committees (ConC). CAP has 14 members who represent diverse parts of the UCLA campus. Members typically serve for 3 years. Factors used by ConC in selecting members of CAP include: (1) a distinguished academic career; (2) expertise in key areas of knowledge, and (3) ability to function in a team environment. Each year ConC contacts Senate faculty to gauge their interest in serving on particular Senate committees.
