The UNLV Academic Council is an assembly of senior university administrators who help to steer the university’s academic mission, including the deans of all academic units, vice presidents, and vice provosts. Convened by the Executive Vice President and Provost, the Council meets regularly for the purpose of sharing information, coordinating efforts, and pursuing collaborative initiatives to advance the university’s academic enterprise.
Leveraging their collective knowledge and expertise, the Academic Council serves as an advisory group to the President and the Provost, reviewing matters of academic and administrative policy and making recommendations. It also functions as a body focused on implementation, providing oversight for operational matters. Members of the Council work on issues that involve their individual units and the institution collectively.
