NC-SARA Institution Advisory Committee Nominations Open

Updated by on Tue, 10/26/2021 - 11:27

NC-SARA is creating an Institution Advisory Committee to begin work in 2022, and we now welcome nominations.

The purpose of the NC-SARA Institution Advisory Committee is to collaborate with and advise NC-SARA about needs, engagement priorities, and programming for institutions (e.g., the annual In The Field institution conference, workshops, webinars, online training modules, etc.). The Committee will serve as an important component of the SARA community to help harvest from and share effective practices across the field to support SARA compliance; to be a direct voice from institutions in planning programming; and to get feedback from institutions on ideas. The Committee will serve in an advisory capacity to NC-SARA and the regional compacts’ SARA dedicated staff, with virtual meetings three times per year and engagement by email in between. We anticipate the committee will have its first meeting in early 2022.

Nominations will be considered from all SARA-participating institutions in good standing (not on provisional status), as well as from states and regional compacts. Once nominations are received, the committee will be created as follows:

  • 8-10 SARA contacts from SARA institutions, representative of regions, institution size, institution sector / type, individuals’ experience with SARA, and diversity
  • Member of regional compact staff
  • NC-SARA Conveners Melanie Booth and Mary Larson

If you are interested in participating, or you would like to nominate someone else, please complete the NOMINATION FORM by November 30, 2021.
