UNIVERSITY COUNSEL
The University Counsel provides proactive professional advice on critical strategic, legal, and public policy issues, is part of the senior management team, and interacts closely with the University’s senior officers. The size, scope, and diversity of a multi-campus University generate a range of complex, cutting-edge legal issues. Many, such as academic freedom, shared governance, federal regulation, and student rights and obligations, are unique to an academic environment and add complexity to the more traditional and predictable legal and business issues encountered by any large enterprise.
The University Counsel is charged with providing advice and support to the President, the University’s Board of Trustees, and the officers of the administrative team on business, legal, and public policy issues.
