Standing Committees

As a college shaped by the distinctive perspectives of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), Earlham College’s governance processes are unusually open and participatory. The college encourages contributions from teaching and administrative faculty, from students and from hourly staff.

To that end, you will find a mix of faculty, staff and students on many of the College’s standing committees. These committees use consultation and consensus in their decision-making processes.
