College Council

The College Council is an elected body of faculty and staff members from the three departments of the College who, along with student members, function as a forum for cross-departmental deliberation and advise the Dean on college policies and procedures such as programs, fiscal matters, and personnel decisions.

Elected faculty members of the College Council oversee requirements for program admission and the adoption, alteration, or abolishment of courses and curricula subject to the approval of the Council on Academic Affairs, the President and the Board of Trustees. A set of bylaws outlines the membership of council, the standing committees, and the voting procedures.

Each department has elected voting members plus alternates that serve 3-year terms. Elections are held each year in each department, so that several new members are elected from each department on a rolling basis. The Dean and other administrators are invited to work with the College Council in the promotion, direction, and support of educational and research activities of the college, the encouragement of high quality programs for students, and in the maintenance of a high level of morale among the faculty and staff. 


The College Council meets on the second Friday of each month during the academic year in the EHE College Commons, 260 Ramseyer.
