Welcome to the SBS College Council Homepage
The well-being of each of the six academic Colleges at UTPA is dependent upon shared responsibilities for governance and decision-making among the Deans, faculty, non-faculty administrators, staff, and students.
Faculty represent the academic heart and conscience of the college. In contributing to the intellectual life of the college, faculty represent the best values of the profession in scholarship, teaching, and service in relation to non-faculty administrators, staff, and students, as well as to faculty colleagues.
The College Council provides a public forum for ensuring joint decision making among the Dean, faculty, non-faculty administrators, staff, and students regarding those issues pertaining to the college as a whole. The College Council does not displace the formal authority of the Dean but ensures explicit and ongoing consultation with faculty, non-faculty administrators, staff, and students and consideration of their advice, recommendations, and actions.
