University Council


In formulating University policy and in making major operational decisions such as on budget matters, the President enjoys the collaborative assistance of University Council. The guiding concept behind this collaborative arrangement at La Salle is referred to as “President-in-Council.” The President has final authority for approving new policies and for changing old policies; however, such actions can be taken only after review with Council. The President’s Cabinet is a subcommittee of this council, convened from time to time by the President primarily for budget review purposes.
