Faculty Councils Defined

The University Committees of the University of Washington, also known as University Faculty Councils, are standing committees appointed by the Senate Executive Committee and confirmed by the Faculty Senate.

These Councils meet regularly during each academic year to provide oversight on the areas within their charges, and to advise the Provost and the Senate Executive Committee on proposals, challenges, changing conditions, needs and opportunities that arise throughout the University. Where warranted, Faculty Councils may also propose legislative changes to the University Faculty Code.

With representatives from the breadth and depth of the University faculty, administration, students both graduate and undergraduate - and staff at the table, the Councils are uniquely positioned to propose thoughtful solutions and innovations that benefit all aspects of University life.
