Created in 1969, the Council of Academic Deans serves as an advisory body for the Provost's Office. It reports directly to the Academic Council and Vice President for Academic Affairs, reviews and interprets principles and regulations, and serves as a liaison between the Office of Academic Affairs and academic departments on campus.

The council meets weekly through the school year and provides a forum for the discussion and development of academic policies and programs for the university. These include faculty tenure and promotion, administrative sabbatical leaves and the development of educational policy.

Its goals include:

  1. Provide an overview of all matters of academic concern from routine procedural items to the development and maintenance of excellence in academic policies and programs.
  2. Make recommendations to the Vice President of Academic Affairs or the President on matters of educational policy and procedure.
  3. Provide leadership and direction for the academic programs of the university.
  4. Provide an opportunity for the deans to share educational procedures which have proven successful.
  5. Refer issues of educational policy when appropriate to the department heads for their reactions.
  6. Review recommendations for tenure and promotion.
  7. Review recommendations for administrative sabbatical leaves.

Meeting agendas are typically arranged as follows:

    I. Disposition of minutes
    II. Reports
      A. Information/Clarification items
      B. Discussion/Action items
      C. Future agenda items
    III. New Business
