Advising Council

Charge

The charge to the Advising Council is to make recommendations to the provost and undergraduate deans regarding academic advising of undergraduates at MU, including

  • the definition, interpretation, implementation and coordination of university policies
  • identification of inconsistencies in the application of those policies
  • recommendations regarding improvement of advising policies and procedures
  • assessment of existing and development of new information about undergraduate advising on the Web

Composition

All representatives must have both the knowledge and the authority to speak for their academic units on undergraduate advising and policy issues.

Representatives will be appointed for a three-year term, with no more than half the membership being renewed each year.

At the end of each representative's three-year term, the chair of the committee will contact the dean, associate dean or director of the division and ask him/her to appoint a representative for the next term.

Deans should be encouraged to reappoint the same representative when possible to maintain consistency.
