The council provides a mechanism for communication and informed decision-making by the individuals responsible for key academic and administrative units of the university.

The University Council meets regularly during the academic year and includes both the academic leaders and the managers of the administrative and support areas vital to education, research and service missions of the university.

The chair of the Faculty Senate, the chief of staff to the chancellor, and the vice provost and associate vice chancellor for academic affairs serve as ex officio members of University Council; the secretary to the Board of Trustees also serves as the council’s secretary.
