In addition to the 15 members, the following six areas will have an appointed representative: Provost's Office, Women's Studies, Women's Resource Center, Affirmative Action and Diversity Resources, Human Resource Services, and Athletics.
B. In keeping with Section 15.9 of the Northern Illinois University Constitution and Bylaws, the Commission will include minority representation. Members shall be appointed by the President from a pool of nominations and volunteers solicited from major University constituencies.
C. Non-student members shall be appointed to serve staggered three-year terms. Non-student members may not serve more than two consecutive terms; however, they may be reappointed after a one year absence from the commission.
