Deans' Council

Deans' Council Policy

Per Policy 13.9 the Deans' Council serves as the representative agency at the University level for specific policy matters relating to faculty concerns that are more restricted to departmental or college, line-authority issues. For more general policy matters relating to faculty concerns which have University-wide ramifications, the Deans' Council and the Faculty Senate constitute the two academic bodies who recommend general academic policy to the University Provost. The Deans' Council is directly responsible to the Provost who functions as its chair.
