About University Council

The University Council is comprised of faculty, staff, and student representatives and is charged in the University Council bylaws with establishing policies and enacting rules and regulations as it deems appropriate for the interests and welfare of the University of Georgia and its academic community. Additionally, the Council acts in advisory capacity to the President and serves as an outlet through which the campus community can voice an opinion regarding University policies and initiatives.


Each meeting of the Council is presided over by the President and is supported by the University Council Executive Committee Chair, the University Registrar who serves as the Council’s secretary, and the Parliamentarian who provides guidance on rules of order. Six Council meetings are scheduled in an academic year, three in the fall and three in the spring. A term of the Council runs July 1 through June 30.
