University Council

The University Council is the representative and legislative body of the University that deliberates and makes recommendations to the President on matters such as strategic planning, university policy, and other substantive matters that pertain to the strategic direction, and operations of the University.

University Council has three components: the UC itself, the UC Executive Committee and the eight UC Standing Committees. The Executive Committee is elected by the UC from among its members and is responsible for agenda-setting and coordination. The Standing Committees are elected or selected by the university community constituencies and report to the UC.

The UC and the eight standing committees represent all primary campus constituency groups: faculty, staff, contract professionals, students, deans, department chairs and administrators.

University Council meetings are open to the public (see meeting calendar on this page).
