The following councils/committees are designed to provide the Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs (EVCAA) and the members of the groups themselves advice on academic affairs and enrollment management matters that have campus-wide implications and to facilitate communications among the various offices represented therein. The Executive Vice Chancellor chairs these councils/committees. Other academic affairs advisory councils and committees deal with more specific topics and issues and are chaired by an individual designated by the EVCAA.
