Sub-councils and Advisory Groups

Sub-councils

The campus groups involved in system-wide policy making are listed below, with the office responsible for staffing the group in parentheses. These groups all meet quarterly. Changes in system-wide policies generally work their way up through the appropriate sub-council(s) to the Joint Presidents Council.
