The Committee consists of twenty-seven Representatives elected from the thirteen undergraduate and graduate schools of the University for one-year terms beginning April 1. Each school elects two Representatives, except for the College of Arts and Sciences which elects three. Representatives serve as judges during University Judiciary Committee trials and are responsible for committee policy and procedure.
