It functions in an advisory capacity to the Board of Governors and the General Faculties Council as well as the President. In 1967 it consisted of the President and the deans of the different faculties, but by 1982 the Vice-Presidents, Associate Vice-President (Academic) and the Director of Libraries were also on the Council.
