Charge: Although not a formal representative body, the University Governance Council (the Council) plays an important role in governance at the University of Scranton.  Formed in response to concerns regarding lack of communication between the University's representative governing bodies(1), the Council serves as a coordinating structure to receive and distribute policy proposals to each of the three representative bodies. The group also provides a forum to ensure the three governing bodies - Faculty Senate, Staff Senate, and Student Government - have ample opportunity to discuss policy initiatives with one another and forward comments and/or recommendations to the President's Cabinet, the chief policy and decision‐making body of the University. The Council is also the primary conduit for policy initiatives coming from the Cabinet to the governing bodies(2).

The University Governance Council is comprised of representatives from each of the three representative governing bodies. These representatives are the four officers of the bodies or their designates; total membership on the Council shall not exceed 12 persons. In addition to this number, the Council has an administrative liaison to the Cabinet, the Vice President for Planning & CIO, the University administrator with responsibility for governance. The liaison is charged with carrying the Council's feedback on policy deliberations to the Cabinet, and conveying information from the Conference to the Council. The liaison serves as the convener of the Council, calling meetings according to the Council's schedule.
