Role of the Council

The Council of Chairs is an important constituency for academic planning and implementation at the university. It serves as an advisory group to the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs and helps to shape academic planning and implementation at the university. The Council also serves as a forum for information sharing and input on innovations and change that relate to the quality of academic programs and initiatives at the university, as well as a platform for discussion of issues that fall within the responsibilities of department chairs. The Council is a member of the University Planning and Budget Group chaired by the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs and the University Calendar Planning Committee chaired by the Associate Vice President for Faculty Affairs, and participates in official functions of the university to which it is invited.

Membership

The Council of Chairs consists of all of the university's department chairs. An Executive Committee made up of one representative from each College, Oviat Library and Tseng College serves the Council. Each College elects a representative in staggered, alternating years to serve on the Executive Committee. The Executive Committee elects the Chair of the Council of Chairs from the committee.
