Membership of the Academic Leadership Council

The Academic Leadership Council is the key advisory group for the office of the Provost, providing open and honest discussion and debate on issues of importance to the academic community.

The Academic Leadership Council is charged with delivering unified strategic direction for the academic programs, consistent with the Institute’s cardinal documents (mission and vision, core values, strategic map), working with the Provost to design leadership opportunities for the academic leaders of the Institute, and for assuring that decisions made by the Academic Council, Executive Council, and Board of Trustees are implemented throughout the academic departments and programs.
