Faculty Councils

The Councils of the General Faculty provide a forum for deliberation on matters of policy affecting the entire institution. They serve in a continuing advisory capacity to the President, the Provost and Board of Trustees, and report annually to the General Faculty. The President will appoint chairs of Councils normally from among the members who are not ex officio.

All faculty members of the Councils shall be elected or appointed for a period of three years. Members elected or appointed during the spring assume office on the first day of the summer term; those members elected or appointed to full three year terms shall be ineligible to succeed themselves. Council meetings shall be conducted according to the latest edition of Robert's Rules of Order.
