About the Council

Institute Council is an integral part of the shared governance model of leadership at RIT. It brings together representatives from the three governance groups of the university: Academic Senate, Staff Council, and Student Government. The president, the provost, vice presidents, and deans are also represented on the Council, which addresses university-level policies and facilitates communication among the constituents of the university. The Institute Council develops and reviews institutional priorities and acts as a forum through which current or continuing issues of higher education can be discussed.
