The Departmental Committee is the advisory organ of the Department. Any changes that the Board of the Department wishes to introduce must first be presented to the Committee, which then gives its recommendations regarding these proposals.

The agreement of the Committee is required for certain policy matters and documents before they become valid. The Committee also advises the Departmental Executive Board (requested or not) on current issues.

The Committee is made up of seven student members and seven staff members.
