Deans' Council

The Chief Academic Officers of the thirteen member colleges meet twice annually as the GLCA Deans' Council. The Deans' Council reviews existing faculty-development and off-campus study programs, considers new program ideas, and approves proposed disciplinary meetings. Further, the Deans' Council provides an occasion for professional development for deans, provosts, and vice presidents for academic affairs.

The Spring 2014 meeting of the Deans' Council will be held at Kalamazoo College on Monday, April 28th & Tuesday, April 29th.
