Displaying active committee roster as of 07/01/2022. Last retrieved on 06/17/2024. Refresh now.

  • A minimum of five members (i.e. a chair, vice-chair, and three members)
  • Ex-officio members include the Immersion Faculty Program Coordinator(s)
  • Additional appointments at the discretion of the Vice-President/President-Elect and Appointments Committee
  • Since it is important that the vice-chair/chair be knowledgeable about the responsibilities and concerns of the committee, it is suggested that the committee vice-chair/chair be selected from the existing committee membership.

In 2008, the Immersion Program Committee was reconstituted by the ACRL Board as a standing committee from the former Institute for Information Literacy Executive Committee as part of the new Information Literacy Coordinating Committee structure.
