Each commission is responsible for determining meeting schedules, speakers, and planning for routine events, with the assistance of Educational Equity staff.
For more information regarding special events, see Event Planning.

Scheduling Process:

The commission may request the assistance of the liaison in contacting the appropriate individual(s) in the following situations:
