Dear Teachers,

I need to come up with a greeting that would address the committee of professors, faculty, and students of my college.

How should I address everyone respectfully? Should I say :
- Good morning professors, faculty, and everyone.
or
- Good morning everyone.

Thank you in advance.

It depends on whether it is meant to be formal or informal.
For a formal speech, yes, it is appropriate to address each group individually (in order of hierarchy) e.g. esteemed professors, faculty members, invited guests, fellow students etc.
