University Council

University Council is the senior leadership of °ϲʿ. Louis. University Council is advisory to the chancellor.

The University Council (UC), comprised of leaders responsible for key academic and administrative units, provides strategic and operational guidance to the chancellor and UC colleagues on challenges and opportunities related to the mission of the university. UC members are charged with carrying out this responsibility through discussion that places emphasis on inclusion of broad perspectives, collaboration, transparency, and thoughtful engagement of expertise from across the leadership team with the goal of advancing and building consensus around strategic priorities.

The University Council meets regularly during the academic year and includes both the academic leaders and the managers of the administrative and support areas vital to education, research and service missions of the university.
