Executive Council (EC) serves as an advisory body to the Dean on budget, policy, program, and other issues impacting the College of Education. The EC shall collaborate with the Dean to strengthen the position of the college within the university, assist and advise the dean in long range planning, in the development of budget priorities, and analysis of potential challenges. Members of the Executive Council are appointed by the dean and include Program Coordinators, center directors, governance committees, classified staff and include one graduate student representative, who may not be present during discussions of personnel matters. A member may represent more than one group (such as a program and a governance committee). The Associate Dean and Division Directors are also members of the EC. Additional members may be added by the Dean as needed for adequate college representation.
The dean or designee will prepare an agenda for each EC meeting. Any member can suggest agenda items. Faculty can request agenda items through a representative or directly to the dean or associate dean. Members will represent their constituent groups and discuss relevant issues with their groups before and after meetings. With the exception of individual personnel matters, which shall not be posted, notes of the meeting are posted on an electronic site for access by faculty and staff.
