WAICU-affiliated boards are formal governing bodies that set policies, manage costs, and oversee compliance for the entity. Board members are the WAICU member presidents or their designees as appropriate.
A WAICU advisory committee (may be known as a council, task force or work group) meets as needed for the purpose of advising WAICU staff on direction and content for specific programs and/or initiatives.
A WAICU affinity group is identified by organizational function and provides a way for WAICU-member college and university colleagues to network, share ideas and best practices, seek advice, and gain professional development. Affinity groups meet on a frequency determined by the group, which may be monthly to annually. A WAICU staff liaison facilitates meetings and promotes communication. Each affinity group has a listserv for digital communication.
A WAICU topical listserv is identified by topic for communication among WAICU members to seek advice and share ideas. Only members of the group are able to use the listserv. Meetings are not typical but may be organized for a specific purpose.
