The purpose of the Forum Council is to serve as an instrument for the formulation and expression of faculty, student and staff points of view on each campus. The Council usually considers questions relevant to its respective campus and its constituencies. It advises and seeks advice from the Provost of the campus and, through the Provost, to the President of the College. It also communicates with and makes recommendations to campus committees, college committees and/or the College Senate.

Forum Council meetings are open to anyone who wishes to attend. As noted in the College Forum Constitution: "Any member of the faculty, staff, or student body shall have the right to attend meetings of the Forum Council but shall not be entitled to have the floor unless he or she is reporting at the request of the Council, or his or her petition has been granted prior approval by the chair of the Forum Council."

Meetings are usually held from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on the second Monday of each month. Please contact the Forum Council chair for more information.
