In 1964, the President approved an advisory body known as the Faculty Council. Consisting of members elected by the various faculties of the University, the Council functions as a two-way channel of communication between the University administration and the Corporate Faculty. It represents the Corporate Faculty to the University administration and may address itself to any matter of importance to the University in general and to the faculty at large. It will make policy recommendations where it regards this as appropriate in view of the situations with which it deals. The Faculty Council is responsive to the President of the University and communicates directly with the President. Faculty Council functions via elected membership comprised of an executive committee as well as several council committees.
