The University Council serves as a Morgan State University governance structure involving the administration, faculty, professional administrative staff, classified employees, and student body in the ongoing operation of the University. It is the responsibility of the University Council to review proposed policies and advise the President concerning those policies of University-wide impact. The University Council shall review such matters as are submitted by the President for its consideration and advice. The University Council may also, on its own initiative, make recommendations to the President for the President's and the Board of Regent's consideration with respect to any matter of University-wide significance and impact. The functioning of the University Council shall not supersede either the statutory authority of the Board of Regents as the University's governing body or the President as the University's chief executive officer and administrator.
