UC is a deliberative and representative body that makes recommendations to the President on long-range planning and informs decisions on other substantive matters that affect the well-being and common interests of the university community.
UC comprises three major components: the UC itself, the UC Steering Committee and the nine UC Standing Committees. The UC is the main representative and legislative body, which makes recommendations to the President. The Steering Committee is elected by the UC from among its members and is responsible for overall coordination, functioning as an executive committee. The standing committees are elected or selected by the university community constituencies and report to the UC.
The UC and the nine standing committees represent all primary campus constituency groups: faculty, staff, contract professionals, students, deans, department chairs and administrators.
Request UC to examine a long-range planning issue or other substantive matter by submitting an Issue Brief.
