Purpose

The Executive Council (EC) is an elected faculty council of the GFO.  Its responsibilities shall be to advise the Chancellor and Vice Chancellors on matters involving academic policy, including priorities, strategic planning, resource and salary allocation, and budgets; and policy regarding faculty promotion and tenure (Sec. 23-45B ).  Additionally, the EC shall advise the Chancellor and Vice Chancellors on the development and implementation of the campus vision statement, and on the general welfare of the campus.  It is expected that the substantial study and deliberation of matters concerning promotion and tenure policy, faculty affairs, academic standards, and the curriculum be undertaken in the campus councils having jurisdiction over these matters as described in Articles VI,   VII, VIII and IX and referred to the EC for final review.  It shall be the responsibility of the EC to ensure that such advice conforms with the broadly defined will of the faculty and, time permitting, to refer to the membership of the GFO questions on which the faculty’s will is substantially unknown or unclear.  The EC shall report regularly to the GFO, and as completely as is possible, consistent with the occasional need for confidentiality in its advisory role to the Chancellor and Vice Chancellors.
