The University of the Pacific Academic Council recommends policy concerning curricular, faculty and other academic issues. Faculty representatives are elected by the faculty in each school or college for three-year terms. All three campuses are represented on the Council. The number of faculty representatives from each unit is determined by the number of full-time faculty in the unit.
All Academic Council meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month from 3:00 - 5:00 p.m. in the Library Community Room on the Stockton Campus. The Executive Board meets weekly and sets the agenda for Council meetings. The Council Chair meets regularly with the President and the Provost to discuss faculty concerns.
