Council Membership

Committee Structure

The Visiting Committee Program is comprised of 14 committees and councils. On average, 700 friends and alumni of the University serve as members of the Visiting Committees & Councils at one time. The committees range in size from approximately 10 to 95 members.

Visiting Committee & Council members serve 3-year terms; up to three terms. After the third term, unless nominated for life membership, a member must rotate off the committee for at least one year before re-approach.  Each Visiting Committee or Council is staffed by one or multiple unit-specific development officers.

Together, the Committee Chair and the Dean/Director develop the agenda and programming for their committee meetings with assistance from the staff. Committees and Councils hold between 1 to 3 formal meetings during the academic year with several hosting additional salons and other committee events at other points throughout the year.
