Transportation Advisory Council (TAC)

Charge

The setting of transportation policy shall rest with university administrators aided by staff members who possess the appropriate knowledge and skills and by an advisory council, which is broadly representative of the campus constituent groups. This advisory council, reporting directly to the Senior Vice President of University Services, shall be known as the Transportation Advisory Council. Although the Council is strictly advisory, major policy issues shall be brought to the council for review prior to administrative action.

The Council’s primary function is to serve as a channel for the expression of user-group opinions and preferences, both on broad policy matters and on specific issues. All matters pertaining to the movement of people and vehicles to, from, and around campus fall within the Council’s purview. The Council shall consider issues submitted to it from outside, initiate studies, and develop policy recommendations on transportation for the central administration. These shall include but are not limited to parking, streets, traffic signals, public transportation, bikeways, and facilities for commuters, pedestrian walkways, and traffic safety.

Activity

The council will normally meet at least monthly during the times that B Base faculty are required to be on duty, except for dead week and finals week. Meetings shall be scheduled by the Chair. The Chair shall keep the council informed on the progress of any recommendations that the Council has made.

Visitors or other institutional representatives can attend meetings and speak to issues upon recognition of the Chair. They may also have items placed on the agenda by written request to the Chair. To the extent possible, council meetings should be scheduled at least a week in advance and that schedule should be made public. Council meeting agendas and minutes should be readily available to members of the Iowa State University community.

Members are expected to participate in the Council’s activities by bringing issues from participating sub-committees. The representatives of the Parking Division, Facilities Planning and Management, and the Department of Public Safety, shall keep the Council informed, in a timely manner, of all items under consideration by those departments which come under the purview of the Transportation Advisory Council.

The Governance Document should be reviewed every year for the purpose of making any changes that would ensure that the document continues to meet the needs and reflects the experience of the Council.

Minutes may be requested by emailing parking@iastate.edu.
