Chair: Andrew Harris (email@example.com)
The Research Council is charged with formulating and continually reviewing policies regarding research, its funding, its relation to graduate and undergraduate academic degree programs, and its service to the community. It is also responsible for reviewing the research needs of faculty, students, and other researchers and for making recommendations to facilitate the research process and productivity of the University. Further, the Council shall formulate and continually review policies on the establishment, naming, reorganization, or abolition of bureaus, centers, or institutes that do not offer programs of instruction or regularly offer courses for credit, including their relationship to graduate and undergraduate academic programs. When it perceives problems, the Council has the power to undertake investigative studies and recommend solutions.
