Council of Deans

The Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost (EVCP) convenes the Council of Deans (COD) as a regular forum for senior academic leaders to discuss strategic and operational issues and opportunities that impact the academic enterprise. The Council helps maintain communication and coordination amongst academic deans as well as between deans and the EVCP; provides an opportunity for deans to influence and develop strategies for addressing critical academic issues; and offers the Chancellor and EVCP a venue for sharing their goals and vision for the university.
