Forum Council

Alexandria Forum Council

The Forum Council is an elected advisory board that advocates and makes recommendations to the Provost and the College Senate on behalf of the faculty, staff and students. Membership represents the Alexandria Campus community and comprises faculty, staff and students. Select faculty and staff members of the Council also represent the Alexandria Campus in the College Senate.

The purpose of the Forum Council is to provide a medium for the campus community to express their ideas and concerns. After discussion, the Council brings items to the Provost, the Senate, or other appropriate individuals or committees with recommendations when needed. The Council meets approximately eight times during the academic year.

Meetings are open to anyone who wishes to attend and are usually held in the Provost Conference Room from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. on the third Friday of each month. A list of Forum Council members and minutes appear below. 

Your opinion counts! We want to make the Alexandria Campus a better place to work, to teach, and to study. Please speak with a Forum Council member to share your ideas, comments and concerns. We want to hear from you.
