The Academic Staff Senate Chair collects all the committee self-nominations from the Academic Staff Senate membership, and is responsible for developing an outline of Academic Staff Senate members' committee preferences. This outline is then presented to the Academic Staff Senate for approval. Whenever possible, the chair will seek to honor the Academic Staff Senate member's first and/or second choices. Otherwise, members may be assigned to their third or fourth preferences, or may be asked to fill committee vacancies not previously considered. In the event there are inadequate self-nominations for committee slots, the chair will then seek out Academic Staff Senate members to fill the seats. If vacancies and special committee assignments are made after the Senate has met, the chair will make appointments and then inform the Senate.

Exceptions to not assigning members' to their preferred committees include one or more of the following reasons:
